More of the same. Settling into a daily routine now. Going out on two jeep safaris a day - early morning and late afternoon. On days that are not too hot, I will go on a late morning safari walk. Still having difficulty in finding Leopards and getting a good, clean shot at them. Most of the encounters are in thick, heavy bush and they rarely stay put for me.

I will keep this schedule up unless something changes in terms of wildlife encounters or weather. The guide and tracker I have are simply phenomenal in their knowledge and ability. It is a great help to have them assisting me in my wildlife search. The equipment I brought are the Canon EOS-1D X and EOS-1D Mk IV cameras, EF 200-400mm f/4L IS, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lenses.The roads are very bumpy and dusty but the gear is holding up very well.
