It also seems a good place to find Chestnut-backed Sparrowlark

Now for another Thihongoyeni moment - one which we enjoyed tremendously!

Right in front of the "parking" there is a No entry-sign which was always covered in mud and one day we witnessed the reason therefor!

This huge bull was leaving the waterhole after a glorious mud-bath with a purpose

Although there were a couple of vehicles parked quite close, he made straight for the No-entry sign!

He then proceeded to scratch every part of his body - first the front leg
