Then we had the amazing luck to almost run into a huge bull elephant walking towards us down the narrow track. We had to quickly turn and retreat but slowly as it followed us along.

I left Lynn and Steve's just after 07:00 for my 09:30 flight to Durban. As long as Jon survives another day with the sharks, I will be meeting him at the airport at 12:30 to pick up our 4x4 Toyota Hilux to drive the Elephant Coast of South Africa, up and into Mozambique for the next 2.5 weeks. On time, Jon arrives in his Hertz rental car to drop off, before we meet the guys from Bushlore who have drove our car here from Johannesburg. Whoa, ...
