Leg 4 of an epic journey

It was raining and pouring the night before, but we were greeted by the most awesome sunshine, so off we went to Addo Elephant Park. Because of the rain, we did not get to see too much of the wildlife, but we got up close and personal with two elephant males.

Male nr 1
Please note the other tracks on the ground. It was quite scary, as this part was ransacked by an entire herd and around every corner we were expecting to find them.... no such luck, but this one came straight at us and because the tracks veered, we were ok. This little Opel Corsa was not so lucky and had to duck out of the way.
Male nr 2

Some Heffalump tracks....
and various other wildlife we saw on the way. Yes, we did try to yield to these little creatures as far as was possible.

This is what we got home to, after going into Addo to grab some beer (very dodgy bottle store...).

 Then we had sundowners on the little deck at the dam, before the Mozzies started eating us....
