... castle and falling on his cake. Lucky boy, you'll get all this plus more. Zoe: Rhino day today. This morning we jumped into some awesome 4x4s and heads into Rhodes Metusa National Park, our mission was to get up close to a Rhino. Mission accomplished after a 45 min walk through the scrub and bush. We found 3 rhinos, a bull, a mum and a baby apparently. Amazingly they were only about 15 metres away from us.

Hot, tired and more than a little frustrated, we headed back to Big Cave Camp for ...
... and after lunch went for a walk along the beach. Met a nice young boy who came up to us on the beach, at first I thought he was trying to sell us something but he actually just wanted to let us know where it was safe to go and where to avoid, quite a change from most people who are trying to sell you stuff. The sellers aren't rude at all but after a while you do get a bit sick of them, especially as they generally have the same types of things- mostly ...
