I think Raymond needs to take me out to see lion and leopard. I saw an directed one of the night/sunset drive vehicles to a leopard sightings on the s25 on the 16th of Jan but that was my only cat sightings in 2 and a bit days of game viewing in that area. There were reports of lion but i couldn't find any.

I'm not sure where Raymond is either! But I am around - just not doing much in the way of drives at present - too busy with other things. Tomorrow I go to Sand River Bush Camp for 2 nights to help with a bush interpretation course (will be rifle protection while out in the field).

Sunday Morning Drive with Jobe - we saw 2 Male lions on Berg-en-Dal tar road, plenty of rhino and a leopard on the S114. We really had great sightings in the area in general. :dance:

Don't want to be giving away too much - so go see my TR...
