Another morning after Samuel and I tracked this herd of Buffalo for more than an hour. We succeeded yet again! Thanks to Samuel we had the opportunity to see the herd crossing the road in front of us.

We had a great coffee stop not far from the Buffalo; it was the best id?e after a long tracking session.

Don?t forget the small ones too: An adult dwarf mongoose. He was just waiting for the sun to get warmer so that he could get rid of the evenings coldness.

The next morning we were at it again. Samuel and I were like blood hounds on the spoor of the dogs. We were on foot, then in the vehicle, had to fight our way through Elephants and were even attacked by some vicious sickle bush branches. We had two other vehicles helping us and we all plugged the fruits of our hard work at the end. We saw the whole pack and all the pubs ? amazing!

That afternoon we went to Tlou dam and on our way there we saw something, which I?ve never seen in my 13 and a half years of guiding: It was a Wahlberg?s eagle fighting to get a meal out of the tree. Yes my first chameleon and it was abounded to be eaten. We sat and watched the whole thing until the Wahlberg?s eagle took off. Wow!!!!! ?(I apologize for the bad quality photos)?

Just before Tlou dam, at windmill open clearing, we had a herd of Elephants in the most beautiful pink light.
