... I'm looking forward to getting a long lie when we get to Cape Town! The night safari was pretty exciting, a new group of people looking to tick off the 'big 5' list. Twice advised we could see lions, if we drove a long way in one direction or cheetahs if we drove a long way in the other direction. I was dying to see cheetahs, the other group had seen them the previous night but we hadn't attended that game drive as we were at Hazyview. It was ...
... lions roar, hippos snort and animals walking on the dry leaves beneath the window chomping at whatever green morsels they can find. There are definitely some unidentified sounds to be heard! We went down to the Kruger fence and to our amazement there were lots of elephants in the river just beyond where we were standing. There were water buffaloes, hippos lazing in the sun next to large crocodiles and giraffes in ...

... 2 hour drive. Everyone was hoping to see a big cat but sadly despite extending the drive by 20 mins none were found. Elephant, Rhino and Hippo were seen, but the two stars of the night were new mammals to all of us, namely a Porcupine and a African Wildcat. Early on the drive a Nightjar got up from the road, it was a Fiery-necked Nightjar, but no Owls were found. A late night for us all, but another great day.
