Decided to go on one of the roads we had seen cheetah last time we were here. Just as the sun was breaking over the horizon saw a lion moving off from the side of the road. Were not able to tell exactly where he headed but we are fairly sure he was watching the buffalo herd we ran into next.
It was a huge herd and they were covering the road. We watched them for a short while and then decided to try our luck at passing through the ...
... that Impala operate in matriarchal herds with a few male consorts in a troop of females and when a male becomes a sub-adult he will leave the herd to join a bachelor herd where they aren't particularly aggressive, they just do their Impala thing and walk around eating.

Early on the drive a Nightjar got up from the road, it was a Fiery-necked Nightjar, but no Owls were found. A late night for us all, but another great day.
