... stumbled upon a giraffe that had been attacks by lions (atleast 2) and was very lucky to be alive still, although, judging from the difficulty it was experiencing walking, it seemed it wouldn't survive too much longer. It's genitals had been completely ripped off by a lion. Ouch. We then ran into a herd of buffalo which was great, as well as many other standard antelope and others alike.

So that was the last game viewing in South Africa, not sure what will be the next park I'll visit, could be in Zimbabwe or maybe Botswana. Very enjoyable despite spending 8 hours a day in the car driving around (have done something like 2500km in the six days I've had the car). Back to Nelspruit now, then onwards...
