    ... pass herds of impala (now why would a herd of impala be collectively known as couple of impalas?), we come across a red mud encrusted white rhino that lets us view him a bit before he moves off.

    ... male lions. They were slowly walking down the track away from us. They seemed to be stalking a giraffe. When the giraffe stopped eating and looked in their direction, the lions would stand still. This happened a few times, until finally the giraffe and his other two friends made a run for it. The lions were not interested enough to chase them- would have been so amazing to see a kill! We continued to ...

    ... Leopard one day. We both highly recommend coming to this place - the owners of The Bush House - Sue and Gordon - are such amazing people and the staff here are wonderful. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back once we re-fill our bank accounts back home.

    Since the reserve is on the border of Botswana we have decided to go spend a night there and check out one more country of Africa before heading down the coast to Cape Town. Botswana here we ...
