Was up early and had a drive through the Serengeti we were not as lucky as the massai Mara there doesnâ€™t seem to be as much here but it is 10 times the size of the Mara. We did see the usual stuff and a few more lionesses. And we did see a leopard but it was pretty far away up a tree and well camouflaged so I couldnâ€™t get a photo but I could see it and its prey up the tree with binoculars, I only had 6 times zoom but some of the others had better cameras and showed me the leopard
The game drive was ok we did see Simber rock where the idea for lion king came and ironically a few rocks along was a lion, I have photos and video of this.
After I set up my tent I decided to go for a shower which I was told would be cold, as I left the truck Sue whispered something, I could not heard and me being subtle said what are you whispering about? She followed me and said that the blokes have hot showerâ€™s so the girls are using the our showers. As I walked over I saw Anne who told me again, I got to the showers and seen Missy outside she shouted inside to the girls that it was me, then got told after a min it was safe to go in, Susan was finishing getting changed and they said the showers were lovely and hot.
I went over to the truck where they were making chicken curry. So Leigh told me to taste it, it was plain so she said take over and do what I want with it. So I got the spices etc out and went over to Helen who had been working hard on it with Susan and Alan. So I asked her what she thought I should add then went over and kept adding stuff with Sue tasting it.
We had a few drinks and the sky was so clear I have never in my life seen so many stars and so bright. Susan and a few others were naming the stars consolationâ€™s, I just turned and sat starring at the beauty of the stars and listened to the group chatting.Then joined in the conversation. Most of the group went bed early apart from Clinton, Brooke, Livey, Chevone and myself stayed up drinking and had such a laugh again then Brooke came back from the toilet and said she had just seen an elephant we thought she was joking but she was not. We got up and Clinton and myself first with our torches and went for a walk and found an elephant at the edge of are campsite eating from a tree how cool to have that in your back garden. We went back chatted and had a laugh and then we ran out of wood, I wanted to stay up later and have a laugh and see the stars but it is so cold I am fully clothed in bed. These moments staying up late and having a laugh.
