You are on top of a hill and you look down across the veld and can see for many miles. Coming down to the waterhole that is visible to the waterhole was ...

    While I've enjoyed all the drives, some are really fantastic and yesterday afternoon and this morning were two of those.

    After finishing up our reserve work yesterday, we headed south to see what we might find. Milani, our Afrikaans driver from Capetown, spotted a hyena pup resting in the brush about 10feet away from the dusty road. We sat and watched him (her?) for a while and then backed up to see if we ...
