We recently experienced what was possibly the last of the summer rains, as luck would have it, this occurred during game drive time. After delaying our early morning drive until the worst rain had passed, my two brave guests from the UK and I ventured out. It was difficult to pick up any sign on the animals as all tracks had been washed away. Eventually we managed to track down a breeding herd of elephants, especially entertaining was a young elephant of about a year old who seemed delighted to plunge his trunk into every small puddle along the road. He also had fun stretching his trunk out to the limit to smell at us. It was also amazing the amount of chameleons we saw that night perched in trees, my eagle eyed tracker Respect said he spotted about ten!
