... park, it had stopped raining, and was just overcast. So, we decided to go ahead with the safari with our guide saying that after rain there is more chance of seeing animals as they come out to drink during the daylight, or to dry off in the sun. We were in a jeep with a canopy and roll bars overhead. So, Mark and I got to stand up throughout the 5 hours we were in the park, sitting when we needed to rest.

The day had started off well enough, we had a beautiful breakfast of eggs, Rotti and jam followed by tea, fresh Papya and bananas from a tree in the garden.
