Hi there, MM! :thumbs_up:

A young couple arrived with a picnic basket and we decided to leave the hide for them to enjoy. :D

On our way back to camp we spotted this bokkie all on its own - juvenile Blesbuck?

We stopped at reception where there is a small shop to buy water and received great news - the Escom and water problem has miraculously been solved!
Back at camp we immediately rushed to the ablutions for a long overdue shower. :D

We had a lekker braai accompanied by jackals calling and a far-off Fiery Necked Nightjar - one of my absolute favourite night-sounds of the bush!
