4.01.2010 Left Nossob at 07:00 for Mata Mata.
x2 Lions down the road apparently they had been chasing the tractor which was going to assist with the stuck fuel truck! We were told to go via Marie se draai.... well.. next thing there was a Cape Cobra in the road, i was doing my normal 20kh's, had to break and the cobra reared up.... not sure who got more of a fright :o :shock: I reversed to get a photo but that gave him/her a chance to get away :x I should not have reversed :doh:
08:20 spotted Bat Eared fox in the same area again.
