By 6:45a, we were tracking leopard and lion that had been thru camp some time during the night.
Unfortunately, we didn't find them. We found a few other animals around.

Mom and Dad spotted eagle owl with chicks.
Vasco and Souper tracking on foot.
Around 11a we went back to camp for lunch of beef kebabs, potato salad, green beans, and fruit. It was devastatingly hot during this period of the day so we spent our time lazing around the main building, watching the waterhole, catching up the travel journal, and downloading pictures.
Warthog at the waterhole.
Giraffe at the waterhole.
Afternoon snacks of samosas and chocolate cake were served at 4p and then we headed out for the afternoon game drive. It was another fairly uneventful drive.
Picked over skeleton.

We stopped for the obligatory sundowner drinks then it was back to the camp for dinner of chickpea coriander soup, beef roast, bob with tomato sauce, sliced squash, purple beans, and dessert. We were up late deciding on the next day's plans to drive to Deception Valley.
