Magical moments!

Hi everybody,

Kath and Jared have departed on their two weeks leave and the camp is still buzzing with action!

Alex has been very busy the last few days building a 3D rig and filming shots of the 110 driving around looking for game. When Alex gets excited after a take, you know, this is something worth watching! I, for one, am anxiously awaiting to see it!

The sun rises recently have been spectacular. The golden sun beams giving all the early morning mist a warm glow, giving the impression we are immersed in a mystical and magical world. The sightings have been equally so...

Myself and Marc being mesmerised by the cheetah, not paying much attention to life until he made eye contact with another spotted cat 40m from him! Mixo had seen him from a distance and was unsure how to react. It was a very tense moment, until the cheetahs nerves got the better of him and fled. This gave Mixo the encouragement he needed and pursued him, at a safe distance, until he found a termite mound to proclaim his status as king of the hill!

There were some very nail biting moments when the Styx pride caught sight of a couple of buffalo who happened by their resting place and having the Windmaill pride surrounding jigga as they continued their moon lite stroll in search for prey.

I can't wait to see what the rest of the week has in store!!
