At the camp I spotted what I thought was a large moth in the rafters of the verandah but it turned out to be a Common Evening Brown Butterfly.

We took a walk along the river front and aside from a big tusker that was too far away for a picture, we managed to spot a Thicktailed Galago and a Cricket.

Day 1. Sunday 18 May 2014. Letaba -> Tsendze.

The next morning we decided to spend some time at Letaba instead of going through the rigmarole of unhooking the trailer and going for a drive. We find the game viewing in that area is really poor and the Mopane was particularly thick too.

Just outside the fence, a relaxed Waterbuck.

A Grasshopper in the road.

This little guy had found a hidey-hole in the hut's door jamb.
