Daily Synopsis.

With all the lodges quietening down after a very busy Christmas Season the break from drive was a welcome rest to most of us. It would however appear that our animals have also felt the effect of constantly performing for the past couple of weeks and are now also taking a deserved break.

On morning drive the guys once again found the large breeding herd of Elephant bathing in Mbali Dam nearly in the exact same spot as they had been found the past two drives! They must be the cleanest Elephant in Africa! None the less it is always a special sighting and one that guests don't often get to experience, so a lot of time was spent with them. Although the rest of morning drive was quiet on the “ Big Five” front their was a lot of general game about to keep the guys busy.

Afternoon drive once again saw even fewer vehicles head out but at least the sightings picked up. Herold was after Rhino and that is exactly what he found himself so once again his guests were very happy and he could spend the rest of his afternoon taking in whatever came his way.

Tomorrow will find him looking for cats, lets see if he has them as well trained as he does the rest.

I've posted a couple of pics below from some of my drives during last week, give the blog a little colour!
