Fantastic sightings last week.  The lodges were quite full so we had a number of vehicles out on safari.  We had one day of heavy rainfall however this did not impact game viewing at all!

Good sightings last week with some interesting interactions.  It is good to see the Southern pride back on the Sabi Sabi Reserve once again.  9 sightings last week.
