We had a great guide from Skukuza (Lucky) who met us Kruger Gate as we only arrived at 20h00. He drove quite slow, looking for animals and stopped at hyenas, maybe 16 in the clan. Thank you Lucky, it was a great sighting :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Oh! Look at the time! Time to get up! The Early Bird Spots the Cat we all know! But sometimes the reason for being awake is not as innocent as enthusiasm ;) I had a serious ant infestation in my tent last night! *gasp, shock, horror* and I am relieved to hear Spargish's alarm go off behind me. Shoe! Going to mix it up and drive with my fellow V-mite this morning! :D
