Trip Report Elephant and leopard safari Part 1 : Shindzela, Umkumbe and Mashatu

Jump to last reply

Myself and 2 friends spent 5 wonderful weeks in South Africa and Botswana during July and August, 2011 . This was my 4th safari, Cheryl’s second and Caryl’s first, so a real mix of safari experience and expectations.

Highlights of the first 2 weeks at Shindzela, Umkumbe and Mashatu included leopard at all 3, rhino at both Shindzela and Umkumbe whilst Mashatu dazzled us with more leopard, hyena pups, leopard cubs, aardwolf, bushpig and porcupine together with many other great sightings.

The full itinerary was:

Shindzela (3 nights)
Umkumbe (2 nights)
Mashatu Tented Camp (5 nights) Photos for these three camps are available at https://picasaweb.go...aUmkumbeMashatu
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (KTP) - Nossob Rest Camp (3 nights), Gharagab Wilderness Camp (2 nights), Kalahari Tented Camp (2 nights) and Kalahari Rest for 2 nights between Maun and KTP. Photos available at https://picasaweb.go...ansfrontierPark
Mobile camping safari with Masson Safaris. Savute – 4 nights, Khwai – 3 nights and Moremi 3 nights. Photos available at https://picasaweb.go...ica2011Botswana


A full trip report with photos is available at http://safaritalk.net/index.php?showtopic=7275

Happy to answer questions about the itinarary planning and subsequent adventure.



Regards,


Pol
