          Rained off and on during the night but none of it was a drenching downpour and we were able to fold the tent in such a way we did not have a giant mess in the back of the car. Drove the road toward Phabeni and very near the Paul Kruger gate saw a purple crested turaco. Was a beautiful bird to watch.

          Took a back road over to the Numbi road and checked out Transport dam one last time. Then Robert sees three giraffe standing looking intently ...

          ... things are not right for them. Never did see what had them so agitated but had to head back to finish our chores since we are leaving in the morning.

          Saw two more lions as we headed back to camp but they were not very easy to see and headed on back to camp. Fix lunch and did ...

          elephants getting ready to cross the river. By massive, a group of over 50 I would guess. Some
          people who had not seen the lions were taking pictures of the elephants. One young man was out the window of his car gesturing wildly. Not real smart with lions in the area but do not know if he was
