Sightings from a Cracking Kruger Safari



We are back in the US after a month in the South African bush and in this week's episode of Safari Stories, we recall some of our favourite sightings from our most recent trip. We talk about the Shishangaan white lion and seeing him twice in a week and how differently he acted towards his brother on each occasion. Hadley discusses some interesting baboon family behaviour and dynamics and some pesky vervet monkeys while camping.

Jomi fondly talks about his last morning on safari, trying to make his flight home while having an incredible drive out of the park, from more male lions and their antics to seeing a cheetah on the hunt.

This week’s episode is all anecdotal action! Don't miss it. See below for photos from some of the sightings discussed.
