Yesterday at around 5 we receives 36mm of rains and around 7 it had cleared with some rains still falling in the southern side of the area.
Off we go, just hoping the wind direction remains the same.

We had one's again a large herd of eland, small herd of springbok and giraffes, and suddenly chance of wind direction and it starts to rain,just turn around there and heading back to camp, but for the whole drive it soak.
We was wet,wet,wet.
Close to the restcamp we had two sightings of spotted eagle owl,one had caught a prey.

Well I had enjoy the shower,after the heat it really felt good. :)
