Another very early start and disappointing morning drive - views were impaired by long grass and dense shrub. After our breakfast stop we saw some regular game - zebra, giraffe, loads of impala. We drove north to more lucrative terrain after stopping for lunch - encountering some showers and some hot spells. Late in the day we were rewarded with two sleeping lions - a highlight of the day, along with more injured zebras, a giraffe wandering past our car, and roadside elephants. Lots of scenery, but dispersed. Drove 90 minutes through rain, poor roads, back to Hazyview for pie for tea, game of pool and bed.
