... by the pool, oh yeh sure- there's a pool! So not real "rags". After some tea and cake we headed out with David, two American women and Hannah from Germany on our forth game drive.
We saw a big family of 12 elephants with a tiny baby and a few other infants which was awesome. Another amazing part was "the Party on the plain". We stopped on this huge green open plain and saw so many animals all together- hyena, elephants, impala, hippo, crowned crane, zebras, kudu and buffalo, ...
