... still “conducting their business” when we decided to continue on our way. Along the way some banded mongooses are also spotted; apparently, the mongooses have taken over some of the meerkat territory and they are rarely seen. The stop for our sundowners is at the top of a hill that affords a beautiful view of the very large reserve. Further down the road, we find a stand of giraffes ...

On one of the main roads of the park we saw a crash of 4 white rhinos. There were all adults and crossed the road from the right hand side. Once they crossed they were just a metre or so ...
