Without any other sightings we arrived at Nossob at 2:30 pm. We ckecked into unit 9c and left at 4 pm for an afternoon drive to Marie se draai which had been so good to us last year.

There was no game at all and we were very happy to see at least this african hoopoe

and a bateleur at sunset at Rooikop

Back in camp we were looking for kyknetta. We had no success and were told at reception that she had left for Mata Mata.

That night we were awoken several times by the jackals howling a bit away.

Thank you, TT, Anne-Marie, MM, lion queen and Pumbaa. :gflower:

As you like the mouse that much, here is another pic for you - but I think it is actually a rat, still cute though

As Marie se draai was a big disappointment we decided to go to Kwang on the morning drive and try to find the leopard that likes to feed on jackals. Outside of Nossob we found a couple of cars parked at the roadside and could not see anything. One of the passengers told us that there were cheetahs on the other side of the riverbed. They were far away though and on the run. Then the lady saw our YR and asked if I was gatita. We had met our first mite but I was obviously still a little bit sleepy and could not believe who it was.

At Cubitje Quap we met her again and she told us that she was on her way to Grootkolk. That availability had come up a couple of weeks before and she booked it. Now we knew who bet us to this. I had made a mistake and sent an e-mail to reservations to book two more nights instead of booking online. As it took them 4 days to reply, it was already booked in the meantime. We know by whom now.

There was another big surprise awaiting us at Kwang. The parking lot was occupied
