... unconcernedly trots across our path to the other side and slowly gambols away but leaving enough time for our cameras to go off in unhurried fashion. No sooner than leaving the rhino, a red encrusted lone cape buffalo stands at a mud hole. We take pictures and listen to its slurping of the watery mud! The sun sinks behind the clouds and the hills and JR brings out the spot light. We marvel at ...

We are in the northern most part of South Africa, on the border of Botswana. At night, we can see the lights emanating from the border crossing. Since we are so remote, we had hardly any access to Internet. Therefore, this blog entry was created on the fly and covers three days.

After ten minutes or so we continued. We came to Vlei Pan. This is a very popular waterhole with the animals because fresh water is pumped daily. At that moment there were only three kudus on the other side. We were now half way to the gate. We stopped to watch a herd of impalas. At this time of the year there are many ...
