A friend Gunther arrived to spend the night with us and give Bernard a lift home tomorrow as he has to be back home before us. We went for a walk along the boardwalk at the estuary mouth to look for hippo and croc. Hippos and pelicans could be seen far away across the river and a large croc on the nearby bank.
Later that evening, the men cooked a braai and discussed matters of high importance over several beers whilst Gill read her book and prepared a small ...

At one of the camera Axel told us to stay put as there was a bird there that hung around dangerous animals and he could hear something ...
... br> You might think we’re crazy after what I just said about hippos and crocodiles but the next day we went kayaking along the estuary. We saw a huge group of hippos making strange, echoing noises to communicate with each other. We saw one croc – they are slow at this time of year, thankfully, because the winter is cold for them. We also saw 2 Bull Shark fins which we had no idea lived in the area but apparently are very aggressive – so not a kayak ...
