Nathalie’s Travel Diary

Thursday, 24 Nov 2005

Location: Shamwari, South Africa

MapI woke up still tired from the wilderness. However, the show must go on & so it did. Today we were yet again doing some animal distribution. At about 10 o’clock we had a call on the radio from Steve. He was with the caracal. I was so exited. Though, it was 30 minutes drive away & when we arrived it had just run off to the bush. I couldn’t believe this was the 2nd time I’d missed it. I really want to see it before I go home!!!
After the disappointment of missing it we went back to Alicedale for lunch. We didn’t go out in the afternoon because we’d planned a night drive, so Emma, Lexie & me went to lie by the pool. After dinner we all started getting ready & we left at 7.30pm. It was a really nice drive. We saw: lions (apparently we’re doing a 2-week monitoring of them where we take shifts watching them closely – can’t wait, we might see a kill), wild dogs eating an impala, white rhino & an aardvark – some really great sightings! When we got back we were all very tired & went to bed…
