It was a very beautiful day when we started our afternoon game drive. I had shown my guests the infamous “big five”; hence some drives are just magic. We were going to find whatever would come our way.
We did our general game and we were lucky to find a few interesting birds, e.g. Lilac bested roller, white backed vultures, fish eagle, darters and some extra birding that we did. The most interesting sighting that we have had was when we stopped for our sundowner drinks. We set up our table and drinks.
There were two female rhinos that were grazing far from us and then they came for water. We did not realize that they were coming towards the dam at which we had stopped. When we all realized that the rhinos were coming towards us, they were about 70 – 90 meters away. As we were about to get into our Land cruiser, they went to drink the water on the side of the dam and did not show any interest on us.
To end our drive off, we saw the rare Serval cat. A perfect end to a relaxing and fulfilling drive.
