Today it was very hot again – 41 degrees. We had a nap again, took a shower and started our packing. At 4 pm we went for another drive to Marie se draai. At Rooikop we saw two black-headed herons

when the lions decided to rest under a tree we went on. We saw some pronking springboks and a lone jackal. We turned around and when we arrived at the waterhole the whole pride had appeared

Then they decided that the parking lot was nicer and crossed right in front of our car.

Unfortunately it was late now and we had to return to camp.

While we were enjoying our nightcap, we heard a lion roaring very close by. Although he seemed to be right on the other side of the fence, we could not find it. We watched many people move into the hide and decided to follow them.The hide was crowded but no lion to be seen. After 20 minutes most gave up as did we. On our return to the chalet we heard the lion again but we were still not able to see it.

The next morning we found the tracks actually right ont the other side of the fence and after our return back home we saw this picture posted from the webcam

we should have stayed a little bit longer :wall:

That night it was very hot in the chahet 28 –32 degrees and we did not sleep well again.
