We are looking for our little owls, they are no longer there, yet it did not seem to me that they can already fly. I look in the small neighbouring trees, nothing. The path is narrow and I can hardly see between the branches. I hope nothing has happened to them :-?

We return home… the Lions are still lying at Craig Lockardt, they barely moved lol 0*\

We return to the camp
The storm was threatening and what was to happen happened! the shower was so "solid" that the doors, the screens and the roof have had a hard time supporting it all 0:
The meal will be called "dinner at the pool" according to my friend Liz ..0..

Then something moves in the tall grass ... a few steps away ...
A huge, yellow Cape Cobra O/\
It often happens after heavy rain that snakes come out of their burrow. He left very quickly in the other direction .... fortunately, the guardian here is a little far ... I have not seen him again and must really one guess it on the photo ... a little better than the fleeing Leopard anyway. He moves a lot… I find it hard to lock him in the box
