We took a day trip to the park on Saturday 26th and found Gina & Josie in the afternoon

Here's some video of them. As they moved south, Gina spotted a warthog moving down a hill towards them and so she went into hunting mode. Fortunately for the warthog, Josie made a bit of a mess of the hunt and it escaped very easily.
