What a beautiful Sunday morning. Saw 6 rhino today. While a foot we had a close encounter with a bull elephant. Rule number one, don't run! He made a couple of charges and vocalized he didn't want us any closer. He finally backed away and we did too. We later tried to find the lion pack that had killed a buffalo but they had left for water. Maybe this afternoon.

We have having extraordinary luck. Some of the encounters we have had our guide hasn't experienced in months. It's not always the photos but the behaviours too.

We watches two rhino heading for a watering hole. It was just mud. The guide said you could see the disappointment almost. They had another walk ahead of them to another watering hole. They did like the scratching post though.

Sitting on the porch doing pictures and I hear the hippo in the river close by.

Outstanding evening drive! Cheetah and another huge leopard. Experiences were great. You won't believe some of the shots and video.
