Yes, EJ, I've also been wondering. I guess you may be pretty busy sorting out the new van and working as well. Hope all is fine.

Oh dear.....sorry! Yes, been busy, had some drives, tried to sort out caravans.....

Got replacement caravan in place last Sunday, with the help of the fence repair team. Then have been trying to move things around after staff helped me put up the caravan tent (I think they were more interested in looking over my things actually!!!!). Still a lot to do, but have managed to get the tent part mostly organised.

Off on a sunset drive again tonight I think.....missed call from the gate, and Patrick is away. Will try to catch up on things......

It was a busy week, lots of drives and sorry I did not share...... black rhino (charging car twice, snorting.....and then turning into a chicken and running away when I did not move), 3 male lions, lots of ellies....giraffes, zebs, impalas......etc, etc

Tonight I did a BnD night drive. Cold and windy weather so was not too hopeful. It was not too bad though, with a couple of genets, duiker, impalas, scrub hares, reedbuck, hyena, hippos, buffalo...... and on my way home again ellie and spotted eagle owl. The crocs at the bridge also entertained us.

As I got home the windscreen showed misty rain, but I did not get wet at all. The tarps on the caravan are flapping a bit, but securely tied down so should be OK. Definitely going to be a noisy night weather-wise though.

Black rhino - great sighting. Hope your night wasn't too noisy because of the weather.

Welcome back EJ. Yes we missed you, but then you had some time to get sorted out with your new home. You spotted a black rhino! Wow thats good, all in all a good drive for a cold windy evening. Regards, D.

Bit chaotic round here having moved most things now into the new caravan tent..... But it will be a bit easier to get sorted out now.

The drive was quiet although it started well with a good civet sighting followed by large spotted genet, also had ellies (including one splashing about at Majulu waterhole), impalas and scrub hares, hippos, male bushbuck, buffalo......

Just had hot drink and am going to bed - very tired.

Did sunset drive at the gate tonight. Started off well, then got very quiet, and misty rain which became heavier by the end of the trip too. We had ellies, waterbuck, duiker, bushbabies, impalas, scrub hares, hyena, and the crocs of course. Much cooler tonight......

Cooler day with continuous rain, mostly very light, but sometimes a bit heavier. Activities tonight rained off! So a welcome night off - enjoyed some gammon steak just now and will make a microwave bread and butter pudding later on.

Had kudus and buffaloes this morning near camp.

Came back from the office at lunch time.....and began again trying to sort out caravan. I have rearranged the tent section after the rain.....things that will not matter if they get a bit wet are now in the parts that might get wet.....and clothes moved to where they will stay dry!

We have a mini-meet here tonight - WendyA camping, and Nighthawk and timbits in a bungalow! Patrick has already gone out for a drive, and it is now too late (I hope) for BnD to call me so hopefully I will have a night in. Rain has stopped for the past few hours, but sky still very overcast.
