Izaak's Big 6

(1) Leopard

My most wanted to see! Still remember my first sighting.

(2) Lion

Despite the huge naps, still the king of the jungle.

(3) Wild dog

Was 'the big unknown' to me. Lucky to have regular sightings.

(4) Cheetah

Thought it was normal to see lots after our first trip, now I now better.

(5) Elephant

Mighty, huge and powerful. Can easily spend hours with them

(6) Birds of Prey

Powerful! Take some time and don't miss them. They are there!


Finest sightings

The S100 Mega Pride

We saw them resting, interacting and killing a wildebeast. What a killing machine! Probably the same as Annekarien and Rene saw when the cubs were still cubs...



Leopard climbing a tree

Yes, I love to see this! A leopard climbing a tree with its prey. Can't get enough of it!


Okaukuejo by night

One of the best waterholes I've ever seen. It's Okaukuejo Camp in Etosha NP. I could easily spend all night watching animals go by.



Birthday in a balloon

On our first trip to Africa (yes, we look so young), it was my birthday. And we celebrated in a hot air balloon just above the Masai Mara! Something never to forget!
