Explored the Moremi game reserve.
We started the day by tracking a lion in our Land Rover. Conveniently for us, lions often use roads in their travels.
We found him at the end of our search. He let us take some pictures, then he went back to sleep.
Our camp has a fully stocked bar. The local booze hounds, hyenas, made off with a bottle of gin last night. These animals will eat anything. They chew on tires, chairs, and tent poles. We had great fun watching a hyena examine a sealed cooler, open the lid, and pull out some soda cans. Still not satisfied, it grabbed the cooler handle with its jaws and dragged it out of camp.
We listen to wildlife stories around the campfire. Animal noises in the background add to a story's authenticity.
