    At Timbavati Game Reserve, near Kruger National Park in Northeastern South Africa, near the border with Mozambique.

    Personally, I think lions are cool, but leopards are way cooler.

    Tim is for sure not in Kansas anymore.

    Very nice pictures and I agree leopards are the coolest cat.

    Apparently, seeing wild dogs is a bit of a treat. They're quite an interesting animal.

    The big antelope is a kudu.

    And giraffes look like something from another planet. Its just ridiculous how tall they are.

    The best description of a leopard is "a large bag of fur, stuffed with razor blades."

    Hyenas and jackals are truly disgusting, but necessary creatures.

    Thanks guys. I'll tell the wife you guys like them.

    BTW, those are not jackals in the second to the last photo. They are African Wild Dogs. Amazing hunters. They are pack hunters, and their kill rate is higher than most other predators. They vocalize during the hunts and apparently can change tactics in the middle of a chase.

    Appreciate the opportunity to see some things that I ordinarily would not, without commercials! Thanks a lot.

    I don't know squat about cameras, but its a Canon EOS Rebel Xsi.

    She's got a couple of lenses. The 18-55 mm lens that came with the camera, and a 75-300 mm zoom.

    you wanna just reach down and scratch their ears...

    You're right Big-M, I think most of the pics were taken with the zoom lens.

    Although, on these photo safaris, you are surprisingly close to these wild animals.
