Received last night.

Today was like yesterday. A few Buffalo's, 60 Impalas, some birds and empty river. Only in the dam is some water, so we think that a lot of animals are to the south.


Hope so for their sake.

@Mark: Thanks. Did ask them last night, but they've moved on to Letaba already and won't be going back to Mopani unfortunately.

We saw lots of crocs eating a dead hippo and on the S91 4 lions. The dam on the S89 is completely dry, all the hippos are gone.


Seems like the sightings might be improving as they are moving south.
And the Park sounds very dry :cry: Please send us some rain :pray:
