Macunjani and the Shobele pride on drive

By Patrick O’Brien on October 29, 2008

A great drive during a rather cool summer morning

The cold front past the east coast of South-Africa and just brushed the lowveld. The result,

cool and cloudy conditions for us at Kings Camp. These conditions did not hinder our ability to locate the Notorious Shobele pride and along the Nharalumi river. We had a terrific sighting for 30 minutes and watched the pride walk past our vehicle within a few meters. The dominant Shobele is looking good and strong whiles watching the cubs intensely.
Minutes later we saw Macunjani the resident male leopard resting at one on the pans.
What a great why to start a day.
