After a windy and stormy night we set off at 04:30 this morning in the direction of Olifants Camp, with our first sighting of note being a green-backed heron catching dragonflies on the wing at first light. Our afternoon drive was along the Sweni River to the south of Satara, and we made it back to our campsite just at gate closing time (18:30)!
