Kaye,

I agree that your photos are excellent and great composition. My husband and I just looked at all them and it makes us very excited to get to MM.

Hope that we will see some of the little babies that you saw. What fantastic pictures of the babies, birth, kills, and all. Excellent bird photos as well.

Thanks Granny Joan for your kind comments. I am totally obsessed with gameviewing and photography and I did have fabulous gameviewing in my time in March.

Unfortunately it seems the Eyrefield Pride has no babies now which is very sad. In March I got a distant sighting of one and audio of at least 2. The lion prides, Styx and Eyrefield are not having a lot of success with their cubs living to be adults, so I am hoping to see some lion babies in December. There is always something that I must see next trip!

Kind regards

Kaye

Kaye,

Really enjoyed your beautiful pictures. It seems that Mala Mala is hard to beat when it comes to gameviewing.

Kind regards,

Johan

Hi Johan,

Thank you, that is very complimentary coming from you! You are right, MalaMala is always fantastic gameviewing and I often do not realize how great it was until I return home and start looking at the photos I have taken. No matter how many times I return, I am always very lucky in what I see and I always see new and exciting things, the day will never never come when I have seen everything!

Kind regards,

Kaye

Utterly spectacular pictures, Kaye. And what amazing and varied sights you saw! I loved the variety of subjects.
I just finished watching your slide show - TWICE! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Panecote

Thanks for looking at my photos - twice. I love the variety and I get very cranky if we only race around looking for the big five! I love seeing everything, then you never have a quite gamedrive as always something to see!

Kind regards

With regards to cheetah at MM.....i know from your pics that you have always had some fabulous viewing, but, have you recognized certain cheetah from one trip to the next?

Thanks

Hi Hari

The only cheetah that I know I saw a couple of times, were a female that had been attacked by a lion and her cubs. She was very distinct because of an leg injury, that looked dreadful but she obviously could still hunt very well. She started with 5 cubs, then 3 then 2 and it was with 2 that I last saw her. From stories told, I do believe a lion got her in the end. She was a character to be sure, but unfortunately she took on the lions once too often. But otherwise, it is subadults that move on or females with cubs passing through and very difficult for me to know if I have seen them before or not!

Hi Carla,

I think those cubs went missing in action when I was there in March and very beginning of April. The 6 were seen the morning of my arrival, 9 March and then I saw the eldest one from a distance in the middle of March, and heard at least one other little one, then not seen again, but saw the Eyrefield Pride a few times. So sadly, 6 lives have gone, without ever really starting! Luckily for the leopards, they seem to be doing very well at MM now and I am not giving up that I will see both leopard and lion cubs at MM this Xmas!

Kind regards

Kaye
