Inyati Game Reserve, Sabi Sands

Having returned from the heat of Dubai the night before,
I was looking forward to cooler weather while in Sands Sands.

Inyati Game Reserve...the accommodation and a lot more.

This is the view form my seat on our game drive vehicle...
I believe that when I am in a reserve, my accommodation

So, we were very lucky...

The dust hasn’t settled on the passing of the Othawa sub-adults, when and in the meantime the Ximungwe females have followed suit. Both killed separately by the Othawa females.

There still hasn’t been a drop of rain. Only the most stubborn of mud wallows still has water and most of the reserve is dry. The crests between the drainage lines are always the first to show the signs of drying out and the bush is not as thick as it could be. It is still...
