On Safari With Curtis 4 January 2016

4 January 2016

As temperatures were expected to, and did, hit the high thirties we left as early as possible.

We found a pack of six wild dogs trotting down the road. We followed them for a while before they shot off into the bush and disappeared.

Our second highlight was at the hyena den. It looked like they weren't in when suddenly we saw a small cub running towards us. We then moved on down the road and found about eight adults and four youngsters hanging around the den entrance.

We also saw giraffe, warthogs, kudu, waterbuck, zebra, wildebeest, vervet monkey, baboon, many bull elephants, buffalo and rhino before the heat of the day quieted things down.

Birds included the African fish eagle,  white breasted cormorants, white backed vultures,  goliath heron, water thick knee and african jacana.
