The afternoon track

We go out in the afternoons from 4 pm to 8 pm. It’s still really hot at 4 pm, but by around 6 pm is starting to cool nicely. It’s a wonderful feeling driving through African bush in a land cruiser with the sun shining, wind blowing, all the noises and sights of Africa to observe and listen to.

A shy wee turtle.

Who then happily took off, or crawled off.

Mr Hippo.

He’s a big one.

See that log in the background?

It’s not a log, in case you try and sit on it.

We had lunch next to these three crocodiles. Luckily they stayed in the water.

But this is what happens just after a crocodile tries to eat a bird.

A couple of members of the new Labour front-bench, I’m sorry I mean a couple of hyenas 🙂

And in case you can’t tell, that hyena is eating a dead baby elephant. You won’t believe how much noise they make eating either.

They would not have killed the elephant themselves.
