So he we are at Amakhala after a superb meal last night, we were woken at 6am, just time for a quick freshen up, get dressed, cup of tea and in the Land Rover for 6:30, bit like being on the Apprentice!
Unfortunately the weather wasn't great this morning very overcast and some heavy rain about. You would think not ideal for seeing wildlife, but you never know.........
We set off from the lodges and out across the plain. There were lots of Antelope, Zebra and Wildebeest about to start off our day:
So after all the excitement we left the Cheetah to it's lunch and headed away to find this chappie nearby,
We came across our first Elephant at this point although he was a bit camera shy:
We had seen a few Cape Glossy Starlings during the morning but this is the first I managed to get a closer shot of:
We then came across a rarity that got our Ranger and Guide Jason quite excited,
After this we headed back to the lodges for breakfast, we were just amazed by what we had seen in the first 3 hours! So breakfast done we had down time until 2 when lunch was served, then off again at 3:30 for our second game drive.
As this post is already quite long, I will leave it here and pick up again later.
