... hogs, one hyena in the distance, impalas and many birds.

At 5:30, we went to observe the daily feeding of a hoard of small birds. We saw a few elephants on a path below so headed back to the viewing platforms.

... 20L raw honey, a 90 kg sack of sugar (since they no longer sell 90 kg sacks, 2 50 kg sacks instead, so really 100 kg of sugar), and a mwati or lamb to give to the women as bribery to get them to cook the 2 sheep.

Last thing, Maruta, nyathiba or dress for the mother, githii or suit for father, and a blanket and a set of sheets to keep them warm in their old age.
