Rain starts drumming on the caravan during the night. Like a Charlie, I forgot to put up the rain gauge but as an estimate we probably had about 20mm. At 5.30am there is a little respite so we set out to do the Maroela Loop (S83). In dull, rainy weather we see exactly squat and return to camp empty handed.
The rain continues intermittently throughout the day and I take a couple of photos of birds near the caravan.
I venture down the Lower Sabie (H4-1) in the early afternoon without success and return to pick up Renette at 5pm. We drive out over the Sand River (H1-2) and see some lions on the far side of the riverbed.
Not our best day but that is Kruger – win some, lose some.
