As it was still early, we continued to Cubitje Quap. Unfortunately, the jackals were quite lazy that day

Image

After breakfast we took a nap again to catch up on some sleep.

As lions and hyenas had been spotted according to the sightings board, we went to Bedinkt on the afternoon drive. Our only sightings were a lone jackal and a far-away bateleur.

This night we opened the window from the bedroom to the kitchen and slept a little bit better as at least some air got in. You can not open the bedroom window since there is no mosquito net.
