        Great camp! The overlook was breathtaking, we loved it after a long day. The Olifants camp was clean, well kept and the location was amazing.

        Still #5 at the gate in the morning. Took the Mondolozi road this time. Elephant and zebra and also the male ostrich as well as the korihaan. We were still looking for the cheetah as we drove along. Went to the picnic area to fix our breakfast. This place has an incredibly awesome view. 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.
