Daily Synopsis.

Not sure what to say about this morning, I could tell you the weather was nice, and by that I mean it wasn't raining, although the blanket of dark clouds continually threatened to. Between the three of us, we all had a very quite morning, and at one stage another lodge guide mentioned to me that he had been driving nearly two and half hours and not seen an Impala. I agreed it was slow but I had at least seen Impala, to which he quipped that I should have called it in, he was sure I'd have got a response from many of the stations. We could also add frustrating to our slow morning, as we had found male Lion tracks earlier on in the Northwest corner of our traversing area and immediately knew it was the Jacaranda Male. We should have known then that we would spend our morning running around in circles, but the tracks were to fresh to pass up and we once again proved we suffer a flat learning curve. I finished my drive early as I had an early check out, but Herald and Johannes stayed out later and found Argyle Male to redeem themselves and salvage an otherwise slow morning. I wish the guys the best of luck this afternoon, I hope things pick up for them. Luckily for me and I'm sure for them, I'm off drive for the next couple days, so things are sure to pick up.
