Going on safari means looking for wild animals and sometimes we focus on the more elusive animals such as leopards. As we started our afternoon safari, it was a good day and everyone was feeling good about the drive. However, as we looked to the mountains we saw some bad weather making its way. So I stopped the car and asked the guests if they would like to carry on if it started raining.
As we carried on with our drive, the rain started coming down quite hard. It made things very difficult to track as all the fresh tracks were covered with raindrops. Therefore, they could look quite old.
As we started to head back to the lodge, to our surprise, within forty-five minutes we had found four of the “Big Five”. My guests and I were both very surprised and pleased that a drive with miserable weather turned out to be very exciting.
