... a lone Impala, no danger here and once he gets whiff of us, he's off, bouncing away. It's fairly easy to spot birds in the bush while walking, but being on constant alert for bumping into anything big and dangerous around each bush kind of puts the birds on the back list. We do however get a nice look at a Trumpet Hornbill and Vulture flying overhead. The heat is rising, so I guess we are getting close to midday, maybe with more time I could figure this out from the sun, but ...
Up at 3.30 again. Looking forward to civilised showers and power!! No power this morning, solar still not working and generator not on. Left at 4.30 and went to Boma. Drove around Boma and Dog pack was asleep at the back fence, one us limping. Philip shood them off. They came back a few times before leaving. Philip said he'd been told not to use the wood for fixing hole in fence, just as well we were ...
... Wild Dogs. Saw Giraffe, Zebra, Monkey, Wildebeest (that were prancing and carrying on), Warthogs, Buffalo, mouse (yes, scampering across road in headlights) and a Lappet-Faced Vulture which is an animal of interest so had to log that.

Stopped at ...
... the authentic zulu dinner and show. Huge letdown folks. They had a bbq with steak, chicken and lamb chops (at least they could have had some nala), a bunch of chaffing dishes with standard fare and some salads. The only food item that appeared to be local was a ground maize dish that looked a lot like grits. Who would have thought that the Zulu would have a staple dish that is also a staple in the US south. Yet more evidence to support ...
