The old lioness came back to our side and stood next to our car for several minutes

and saw yet another lioness. Altogether there were at least 15 lions in the area, probably more.

We met Mandy and the two Germans for drinks, and heard of MandyM’s incredible cheetah sighting on the S100, bug her to post pictures! A spider crossed our path

Outside our bungalow we met a couple from Atlanta, the first other American self-drivers we ran across.

At Satara many people get up early, there were 20 cars in line by 4:30 on November 17. We went north a little ways just to let the pack break up. By the time we turned around and went to the S100 we had it to ourselves, and were rewarded with a porcupine crossing the road – still too early for pictures tho. We found plenty of waterbuck
