It is Thursday now. I decided to combine it with Wednesday, as it was hardly anything to post for Wednesday. Yesterday was a miserable, hazy, hot day and sightings were the same. We drove to our favorite Afsaal and back. Unfortunately food was not ready but we managed to get a nice cup of coffee. All in all, couple of elephants and some impala. It was very disappointing. Afternoon was even worse. We went towards Pretoriuskop, made a round trip and managed to get one old daga boy. Afternoons are still too hot and game is lazy. So, we decided to skip afternoon drives today and tomorrow and to concentrate on the pool and our camp visitors. Will tell you about our visitors later.

It rained Wednesday night and Thursday dawned sunny. First sunny morning since we have arrived. We took S114 and S21. After the rain sand was showing all sorts of spoor.

There were only 3 dogs sharing only one impala leg. We suppose they killed it a little bit away from the road and the others were looking after the breakfast.
It was such a nice and exiting day.
Our visitors in Skukuza differ from those ones in Malelane. No Mile Pile nor Nyofra but then these ones play around our hut.
This was last night’s surprise.
While I am writing it is again dull and dark, looking like rain BUT we are in KNP.
