... sleep for a couple of hours before we had tea and headed out on night drive. We first did a quick scout of 600 but saw nothing, one of the other trucks had located the Thanda pride of lions on the opposite side of the reserve, so we headed to the main road so we could cut through but almost immediately bumped into the elephants on the road! we sat and watched them for a bit! unsure of where they all were in the darkness! all around you can hear the sounds of breaking branches ...

However we did see hyena, wildebeest, and most fascinating dung beetles pushing a pooh uphill. in the 10 minutes or so we watched them they managed to get it approx 15 yards, the female just sits on it whilst the male does all of the work. Before heading back we went to see the lion pride which are being held in the boma waiting ...
