... afternoon. One curious rascal found his way into the cab of our truck. Much to Joe's relief he didn't operate like you would expect a human thief! He passed on the US dollars and the laptop to help himself to a chocolate lollipop. Unfortunately we don't have a photo of the baboon sucking on Joe's lollipop, you will have to use your imagination!

During the night hippos were very ...

It seemed to take us so long to drive to the camp. The scenery along the way was very beautiful. The wildlife sightings was very disappointing – 2 skittish elephants, 2 kudus, 3 impalas and a white tailed mongoose.
We finally arrived at the camp site at 5:30pm, just in time to see the ...
