It was in the late morning hours and the sun was warming up our bones after a cold Kanana morning. I was out for a game drive with a group of four guests, we all had our eyes searching with hopes to spot anything that moved. All the guests were caught by surprise when out of excitement I nearly jumped out of the moving vehicle. I was so excited because of a small little cat that I picked up basking in the sun right in an open area, it was an African Wild Cat.

These African wild cats are known to be nocturnal and very illusive but seeing it during the day time was the highlight of the game drive and the day for me and my guests.
