Friday started out dry, so from that respect, it was already an improvement on yesterday! As the day progressed, it turned out to be another goodie for the Motswari Guests!
The three Mahlathini males were relocated at Voel Dam after having finished their buffalo kill during the night, but during the course of the morning, they slowly made their way across Argyle Rd and off into the Klaserie, but not before Godfrey and Johannes got to see them.
Grant and I headed straight south to go and see what was happening with Rockfig Jnr and Thumbela with their impala kill, and found them still with the kill. The Rockfig hyena clan members were around and waiting patiently under the tree for any scraps to fall as Thumbela ate, but she soon fell asleep and left the hyenas with little chance of getting a free meal.
