12,800... lol. I took one of a lion after dusk @ISO 6400 and it was so noisy. My T4i just couldn't handle it. I don't have that body anymore.

To me Joe that leopard is outstanding.

I have to say I have nothing against trophy hunters to each his own. I'm thinking it would be a lot
better and less expensive to just hang photos the likes that we have seen in these two threads. I'm
especially liking some of the B&W images. As I said in another post you guys should do a book.

I noticed that the "lens used" in the metadata that shows up with the image is always weird and wrong. Just to set the record straight, If I was using my D4, then, my lens was my Nikon 300mm AF-S f/2.8, and if I was using my D700, then, my lens was my Nikon 70-200 AF-S VRII.... those are the only two lenses I used.

Moving day.... the next day consisted of a morning game drive, brunch, check out, and another interesting/confusing 4 hour drive from Madikwa to Johannesburg where we went strait to the airport, dropped the rental car off met up with our clients, and stayed overnight in a very nice place about 10 minutes from the airport.
The next morning it was back to the airport to catch a 45 minute flight from Jo-berg to Hoodspruit airport..... I tiny military airport minutes away from Timbavati Private game reserve. From there we took a shuttle from the airport to Kambaku Lodge, a quick check in process, light snack and off for a evening game drive.
I am not going to bore you with the routine of the lodge or the amenities, because they were pretty much identical to Jaci's lodge that I detailed earlier in the thread.

The main difference was that Kambaku used a field guide and a tracker on it's game drives. A tracker can be worth his weight in gold, or a living hood ornament...At Kambaku Lodge, they are simply fantastic and were very invaluable to the fantastic experiences we had in Timbavati.

The next 4 days was so action packed with game sighting and adventures, I could post pages and pages of images and stories. But instead of doing that I am just going to load images and explain a little about them as I load them.

A leopard up in a tree feeding on a impala......very very high ISO images

I did get ahead of myself....the first run in with the pride of 11 lions was early the next morning.... you could hear them growling, grunting and roaring all night long from the lodge. So when we went on the game drive the next morning the trackers knew what we were looking for.... it amazed me, the tracker from my vehicle and the tracker from Buddy's go out of their front bumper jump seats and headed different directions into to the deep bush to find this pride of 11 LIONS.... OMG
My Tracker pushed them towards where we were from what I understand, because we turned a corner and there was 11 lions in front of us on a game trail with the tracker following behind.

I will load a few images or the first encounter with this pride.
