We headed to the beach instead of doing a game safari this morning, so we were able to sleep in an extra hour. Although it gets bright so early, that we really did not sleep in.
We boarded the boat and cast off around 7:15. The wind was at our backs on the way there, so it was not too cold. The sun is out and the wind is fairly calm right …
So finally at the game reserve after a few hours drive. There are ten volunteers with one member of staff! Let's see what will happen in the next four weeks. Feeling slightly apprehensive to the amount I am going to see as appear to have already seen more than this reserve happens to have. At least there are beds, toilets that flush and hot showers, see this is what bush life is about ...
... or so, lengthened by the sightings. We can't believe how much we see in the first day, white rhino (the collective name is a crash, you truly learn something new every day here), zebra, giraffe (their collective name is a journey), impala, warthog, black wildebeest and the highlight today, a herd of over 20 elephants, a mix of bulls, female and young, crossing one of the plains seeking the cool relief of the water on such a hot day. We circle them in the jeep stopping ...
... the Easternmost part of the game reserve. It was very refreshing! Photos from those drives are posted below.
We shared our experiences with Brenda and Lawrie Dilks, from England. Félix and Sébastien described them as "very, very kind people". We had many discussions, shared many laughs and our meals together. We are grateful for their presence and their camaraderie.
... there has never been a dull moment and in hindsight I should have stayed longer!. There have been loads of bugs, some very interesting evening meals, some crazy activities, drinking games, heatwaves and some super cool new friends made along the way.... I will not forget this place in a hurry, hopefully I can return to do it all again some day....
Now on to new adventures....
much love and bye for now xx
