5.30 am saw us on the road again. Soon the Eastern horizon was a ribbon of pink then as the last star disappeared into the azure sky with a few smudges of clouds, the African landscape came to life. The bleached dry grasses began to glow gold as the rays of light from the yellow sphere crossed the land. Animals seen this morning were Mongoose (a family of about 7 ran across road in headlights), Owls, Hyena, ...

The forecast for the day was heavy rain, so the actual weather of grey with a few light showers, and of course warm, was actually better than we hoped for. As an aside I have yet to wear a fleece on the trip.

The plan for the day was to drive through the Western Shores Reserve as a short cut to Ilala Weavers, for lunch and some retail therapy. We could then visit False Bay, still part of the iSimangaliso reserve complex before returning to ...

It was still raining when we awoke, and indeed it had been pouring all night. We duly breakfasted, loaded the car and headed off by 9am.

The only bird of note on the journey was a Purple-crested Turaco flying by the roadside ...

... I could hear them breathe, smell them, see the colour of their eyes (with the exception of the lions, we didn't get THAT close). Spring in the southern hemisphere also meant that we got to see many babies and juveniles in all species (again, with the exception of the lions). The most dramatic moment came when our jeep turned a corner and we met up with a herd of elephants - in all I counted 20, but our guide said there was probably more than ...

Day 9 &10 - Vertigo!

... lunch. Unfortunately a coach party was booked into lunch arriving at the exact moment we got up off our sun beds, so we made do with a liquid lunch instead. The afternoon consisted of more sunbathing and a snooze, then a very pleasant dinner on our 'reserved' table in the prime spot on the terrace. Despite doing nothing, we were still in bed by 8.30pm and asleep minutes later. At 2.30am, I woke up with the room spinning violently. I felt slightly sick ...
