... a white rhino charging ahead and crossing the road just in front of us. The distant clouds and rain gave a beautiful rainbow to top off an incredible sunset. Back at the campsite we were very lucky as a big storm had come through and blown 3 of the tents and broken the frame of one but our tent was dry and undamaged. There is a floodlight waterhole here that you can view the animals day and night but nothing was ...
All the videos are together at the end. Give them a few seconds to load...the animal lovers will want to see them all. Pretty cool seeing these guys so close and just hanging out and surviving out there.
Don't miss the big male lion and his harem!

I think in total we saw about 9 lions, many ostriches, more then 100 giraffes, about 200 elephants and thousands of zebra's, springboks, wildebeasts etc. Oh and maybe about a 10 ton of Elephant poop!
