for reading and commenting on here! Day 7
27/10/2012 Grootkolk to Nossob
We woke up at 5.30 am to our daily dose of brownie.
We also heard the lions roar in the dunes behind the camp but they didn’t show. Still we decided to take it slow and not to go and hunt them down right there and then as we didn’t want to spend too much time in the car before heading down to Nossob as we wouldn’t be able to check in before 1 pm anyway.
But eventually we were all sorted and the car packed minus the fresh stuff (as our fridge in the car had packed up earlier), so we decided to have a look. We still heard the lions calling and could tell exactly where they should be. Just a pity that there were dunes that obstructed our view…
We met another camp guest who had stayed for the night and was on his way to the Bots side. He asked us if we had seen the lions and we told him what we knew. His answer was: “Just head up the dunes. You got a 4-wheel drive. This is Africa!”
Very weird once again and I’m still not sure if he was serious or not. But I reckon he was…
The whole day remained actually VERY quiet.
Once again we opted north first for our morning drive before turning around and making our way to Nossob. Funnily enough, we heard yet another lion roar somewhere in the dunes in the very same area where we had first met the Grootkolk family. Weird again. We hadn’t heard so many lions calling in one trip. Anyway, it didn’t take long for us to locate the guy as he came leisurely strolling down the dunes and onto the road to look for the bed that he could use for the rest of the day.
