Today was meant to be the postponed day off, but unfortunately the majestic police of South Africa couldn’t come around yesterday to take statements from everyone that had money stolen out of the safe, and therefore today was the day to do it. And as you’ve probably figured out by now…No there was no day off today either!
Rhinos on the agenda
Procedures as normal and a morning game drive was on the agenda which proved to be quite something.
We set out to look for rhinos and that was the aim, which was fulfilled.
As we approached a sodic site about an hour’s drive away we spotted tracks from black rhinos. It was a bit unclear how fresh the tracks were and where the rhinos might be, also, how many they might be. Our guide estimated a crash of four individuals.
Nine rhinos at once!
We got into the car and drove about a minute, taking one turn and just round the corner, there they were…three, four, five…six, seven, eight…and nine!
A crash of nine black rhinos were slowly grazing in a perfect spot and gave us a 30 minute relaxing moment with the huge creatures. Not a bad way to start the day!
The rest of the day was spent at camp giving individual statements to the police to sort out all the technicalities and get the whole thing sorted. We’ll see where it all ends.
