Heading back after dark I caught two porcupine out of the corner of my eye, and then shortly thereafter another one was slow enough to allow a proof shot finally, our 6th one of this trip (7th if you count the one from the camera trap)

I woke up at midnight to the sound of breaking branches and ripping grass right outside the hut. I could even see a trunk by the moonlight reaching into the tree next door. My husband refused to believe there was an elephant in camp, as there is a fence, which is meant more to keep us in than animals out. We put shoes on and grabbed the flashlight and looked outside, but elephants are very good at hide and seek. In the morning Job asked if anyone had heard the elephant, so I wasn’t crazy! There was a nice sunrise

We voted to go for a short drive and a walk to a nice sundowner spot. However that got derailed when soon out of camp we came across these male lions…
