Weather: As has been the case for a few days now the temperature today reached around 32 deg. Thankfully there was a stiff breeze to cool things down a little but despite that there was very little game to see after 10h30.
Today’s highlight was a huge male lion strutting up the road towards us near Umganu in the south. There were other lions close by which we could hear but not see. Just a minute or so before the lion sighting we saw a rather nervous looking hyena beating a hasty retreat…. so would I if I had a cat as big as that in the area !!! The rhinos and elephants were also out in force today so all in all it was a good one out there!!!
