How wonderful Kate that you were able to take advantage of your one day break and travel with the trainees for a day of sightings, photography and sharing some tips. It has to be special when you don’t have to concentrate on the driving but can sit back and play “visitor”. As one who traveled for my job, I sometimes planned my trip to include a weekend between states or countries, so that I could experience more if the city I was visiting. Thanks for including such nice photos!

Hi Kate, such beautiful images were taking on the morning while you were riding in the back. Completely different as when you are driving the guests around. Loved the image of the giraffe peaking through the leaves. The Buffaloes also are my favorite animals to sit and watch. I see there are a few calves amongst the heard.

As a first row ‘regular,’ I completely understand your desire to skip the sleep in and join the hunt!
We’re in the middle of our visit and thrilled to be enthusiastically in our seats, ready to go before each dawn!

You saw Fang! The Ellie with the backward tusk! That is awesome! She is also found around Djuma area! Thanks for the great pics on your rare day off.

Looks like a fantastic couple of outings to me! That crusty old buffalo bull appears to have such a personality!

Kate, beautiful pictures , it must have been fun to sit in the back of the rover up high. A new perspective I am sure.

Cool post Kate, awesome images, and a great look into your “time off.” While it might not have been ideal conditions for the “perfect” shot, I really loved the image of the cubs attempting to slow down the Ntsevu lioness!!
