Still on the H 4-2 we watched some vultures in a tree when another car with a yellow ribbon stopped next to us and asked what we are looking at. We told them about the vultures. They told us about more vultures on that road and moved off before I could introduce myself. So, whoever you were, it was nice of you telling us about the vultures.

Since there were no sightings on the H 4-2 yesterday, we were taking the S 130 today. We saw some nice kudus

another very shy mongoose which did not let us come closer. I think it was a slender mongoose this time

On the S 137 we had a different kind of roadblock

Close to duke’s waterhole I saw a wombat crossing the street. We stopped but could only see francolins. One was doing an interesting dance though (no pics since the grass was quite high). At the waterhole we caught up with the car which was parked right next to the spot where the wombat had crossed the street and asked them what they had seen. They told us it was the francolin. Well, what we saw appeared to be much bigger than a francolin.

On the S 28 we saw a leopard tortoise

Image

and guinea fowls

Today we took the H 10 to Mlondozo, hoping to see some cats.

We saw a giraffe in first light

Image

and we found a small breeding herd of ellies. This one was quite funny. He tore branches of a small tree and threw them over his back

Last time we visited Mlondozo, we saw a huge herd of buffs and all kinds of general game. Today the dam was full and it was very green but there was no game.

Image

Instead we found a pair of mocking cliff chats

Image

And a spotted flycatcher
