Christmas etc.

Gill and Eddie arrived on the 22nd and we had a great time with game drives, cheetah walk and finding one of Tasha's favourite leopards, Honey-thorn and her cub Ximenia.

We had Christmas dinner on the night of the 24th at Tasha and GP's house with roast turkey etc.  We all ate and drank too much but it was fun.  Vlasta and I drove to the lodge on Christmas afternoon to spend some time with Gill and Eddie and while sitting on the deck in front of the lodge we had 17mm of rain and the dam filled up about 2 metres.  We had to detour around a flowing river to get home that evening.

This morning we drove past Bull Frog Pan and all the bull frogs were out!

Rain coming!
