Tuesday the 11th of February I took the Morning Drive out and on the powerline no entry road to the S91, we found a Brown Snake Eagle, and as we were driving down the road, he flew ahead of us, from one powerline pole to the next.
We also seen some Impalas and close to the tar road we found many Giraffes. A km or so after crossing the high level water bridge we found the local troop of Baboons, and while they were enjoying the White berries from the White Berry Bush, we took pictures and also got the 2 Hyeana cubs at the den. On our way back to the camp from another no entry road we found looooots more Giraffes, Zebras, and right next to the tourist road my 1st White Rhino since being back in Olifants.
On my Night Drive that evening, we were not too lucky with the cats like the previous few night drives, but seen 2 Hippo's, MAAAAAAANNNNNYYYY Impalas, Scrub Hares, Spring Hares, Night Jars, Bronze Winged Coursers, Water Thick knees, with 1 having a Scorpion in his beak, and enjoyed the stars from the View Point on the S44, and eventually got some Zebras close to the tar road as we completed the S93, S44 loop, North East of the camp.
The other drives Vusi, Patrick and other Vusi did, they were also lucky with seeing Leopards, Lions, Wild Dogs, Buffaloes, Elephants and the other general animals.
And last night I took the Bush Braai drive out and seen the normal animal sightings, but ones I haven't had in a while like: Steenbok, Duiker, Elephants, Leopard Tortoise and many nocturnal birds after the dinner.
This morning Vusi seen Lions on the tar road very close to Nwamanzi view point 9 km's from the camp.
Patrick and myself did the Morning Walk at Jim's windmill, and after fishing a Golden Brown Baboon spider out of it's burrow and viewing the Golden Orb Web spiders and walking for a while we seen Elephant bulls in the distance. When got to their fresh tracks we could smell the 1 bull is in musth, and it was then when we heard the Elephant herd far to our left, and the Elephant Bulls were gone. We followed their track for a looooooong time and those cows definitely made the bulls crazy, because they were nowhere to be seen. Eventually we could only see their backs disappearing over the slope and with the more senior guests we had, it was difficult to follow them, but eventually got to the herd, and more Elephant bulls arrived and eventually had to walk zig zag to get out between the Elephant Bulls, trying to get lucky with the cows. hahaha
When we got back to the camp, the River walk was waiting for me, and seen some Waterbuck, Impalas, Hippo's, Crocodiles, Rock Bunting on the walk and also had the memories of where the big Jackalberry and Fig trees used to be, before they went on holiday to Mosambique during the 2012 floods and never returned.
