Ive just come off back to back Mphongolo trails.
We had some interesting experiences :D

Two of my guests got engaged in the middle of the dry Phugwane river bed one evening at sunset, what a beautiful place to pop the question… :k

One night while sitting around a small campfire we had an Elle bull in mhust walk past our tents in the darkness.
We couldn't see him, but the breez was right and we could smell him.
He drank for a long time in the river bed close to our camp and we listened to his breathing and the gallons of water pouring out of his trunk and down his throat... He was that close.
We watched him in the moonlight as he walked up the dry riverbed past our camp.
A massive animal moving slowly and deliberately in the moonlight.
He disappeared slowly into the darkness, as quietly as he had arrived…

Wilderness is such a special place, and it is such a privilege to be in it!

HB.
Walk quietly, but carry a big stick...
