... any rhinos, leopards or cheetahs but it was still an amazing day. Evidently rhinos are becoming harder to find in Kruger due to the poaching problem, this year so far they have found over 170 dead rhinos with the horns removed. We got back to the lodge just after 6 and took a swim to wash off all the dust. We had another beautiful dinner round the fire pit and a couple of night caps at the bar.

... spotting. Both John and Johan are as excited as we are. We go back the way we had come and spot a hyena. We try to follow it, but it keeps just ahead of us loping away. We get back on the road and lo and behold, the placenta and umbilical cord are gone, we see evidence of the remains having been dragged into the tall grass. Further along, the birthing sac, too, is gone. We knew the hyena would be coming after the birthing remains but Johan didn’t ...

We then went for an extra ...

... Gomo Private Game Reserve spending one night on route.Matthew took over the driving and later to our relief the road was quiet as suddenly he cursed at the car driving towards him on HIS side of the road - very close I might add - as at the last moment he realised he wasn't in Norway but Africa. Phew
On this road we encountered a herd of giraffes enjoying the heat of the ashpalt.

... and lots of beautiful birds. When we saw the baboons a big male chased a little baboon and two tiny babies looked like they were playing footy and were tackling each other. It was really funny. We had pizzas for lunch and saw elephants at the viewing platform having a drink. I hope your having fun in Australia. p.s the time difference is 8 hours by Liam the ...

    Absolutely loved it, the food was great, the people were really good to hang out with and taught me a lot about the bush. The room I stayed in was very clean and comfortable, with excellent service the whole time. We had all sort of animals wandering around the lodge during the day and night, including Giraffe, Zebra and a Spotted Ginet!
