Without any other sightings we arrived at Nossob at 2:30 pm. We ckecked into unit 9c and left at 4 pm for an afternoon drive to Marie se draai which had been so good to us last year.

There was no game at all and we were very happy to see at least this african hoopoe

Image

and a bateleur at sunset at Rooikop

Image

Back in camp we were looking for kyknetta. We had no success and were told at reception that she had left for Mata Mata.

That night we were awoken several times by the jackals howling a bit away.
