It has been a while since the last post.
We are back in ‘civilisation’ and the daily grind has interfered with posts being more often.
We left Senyati our next destination Ihaha. A short distance but a slow drive because it is so scenic.
lets first get the negatives out of the way before we continue with the awesome stuff.
The monkeys and baboons are an annoyance but since we visit there home one try to deter them from sleeping in your camping tree as far as possible. They will take any chance to grab stuff from your kitchen.
The robbery at Ihaha has been published extensively and we can honestly say we did not feel unsafe at any stage. Hourly patrols were done every night and even though it distracted from the peacefulness it did make sleeping easier.
Even though we are fully kitted to be totally self sufficient one does use the facilities if they are available. The ablutions at Ihaha is in need of some maintenance.
On our way to Ihaha having a snack.
Arriving at the gate.
Once again we were blown away by the birds and wildlife.
I eventually got some pics that was taken by Charmain to include in the post. Apologies for flooding you once again with wildlife pictures but believe me many was left out and did not make the cut.
To give you an idea of how abundant the wildlife is. Charmain lined these four up in one picture.
And some more great sighting photos.
Our only time spotting some Lechwe.
Some Giraffe foreplay.
One day we explored more inland and even though it is much more difficult to spot the wildlife and the fact that we did not see as much as on the river road we still had some nice sightings.
Our only leopard we saw the whole trip was sadly very shy to pose. 😦
And some more wildlife pics 🙂
The campsites at Ihaha is about 200m apart and wildlife roam free around and through the camp.
To break the flood of animal pics I include some campsite pictures before I swamp you again with more animal photos.
As always the sunsets were spectacular. We had to shoot some promotional pictures for the Helinox chairs and camping equipment we are distributing in South Africa through our new company 4campsa(website still in progress).
As promised our last bunch of wildlife pics.
I want to leave you with our breakfast with a view we had most mornings.
In the next post we will meet some sandy roads.
Our holiday trip turns into an adventure trip, and we camp where nobody has ever camped before.
