Morning all
Last night drive was a bit different, had to go out with the media, so the drive was limit to Oranjekom, we did saw giraffes in the area of Moonrock as well as a herd of eland close to Oranjekom waterhole.
After this a visit at the falls to look at the new system of lights, which will enable visitors now to even have a LOOK AT IT DURING THE NIGHT.
Not the whole night :) .
