Nothing like being woken up to

|Checking out our car|
We were unfortunate to just miss a leopard drinking at the Moravet waterhole although we did get a look at him and a couple of shots before he headed off into the dunes. According to the couple how had seen him, he’d drunk before crossing in front of their car and heading off – you win some, you lose some ;)

Once in Mata-Mata we checked the booking office for any vacancies for the evening but unfortunately there was nothing available (obviously popular – we could see why) so we started the long drive back to Twee Rivierin. The lions and cheetahs were still all there sleeping off the heat of the day, but the highlight was a pygmy falcon perched on a branch – our first sighting of this tiny bird of prey.
The rest of the drive was uneventful, stopping only to photograph the antelope before getting back to Twee Rivierin in time to set up camp for the night.
