    ... all the cubs were present and correct –
    now casualties from the day before.

    Next we were off in search of the elusive black rhino. We
    saw hyenas, more elephants, giraffes, gazelles, zebras, secretary birds,
    ostriches, etc, etc……

    But no rhino!

    Not to be disheartened, Godwin headed for the Ngorongoro

    ... some of them
    for up to 2 hours. In western cultures this would be outrageous as most
