I got up early to bird around the hotel, which was quite successful. After breakfast, the 6 of us who arrived early took a 6.5 hour tour at Mokolodi Nature Preserve. After a brief rest, we then went to a long dinner with some faculty members of University of Botswana.

The animals we saw at Mokolodi, excluding birds:

• Rhebok
• Giraffe
• Baboon
• Hippo
• Waterbuck
• Zebra
• Wildebeast
• Warthog
• Kudu
• Impala
• Red heart beast
• Water monitor
• Giant honking African rock python

I've loaded my bird list twice and I keep having server errors, so I'll do the birds tomorrow. I will say that neither of the two serous birders saw the ostrich, but we're going back to Mokoldi later in the tour.

Yay animals!
Living in Malawi taught me a great appreciation for warthogs....they are one of the funniest creatures I've ever come across. I was once on safari and the man leading our tour called impalas "weeds" because there were so many of them....that seemed accurate to me. I hope you're enjoying your adventures!! Erin :)
