... The real highlight of the night though was coming across a female and calf white rhino!! it was amazing!!

Far from missing out I got to see a Lion about a meter away from me, unfortunately it had been shot with a tranquilliser so was not exactly roaming free. However it was fascinating to see this incredible animal so close up.
