This morning was our last 5am start and our last game drive. Sicla was on a mission to find me more elephants – not too difficult to track with the large prints their feet make. They are rather like huge marshmallows!

We saw a giant African snail, giraffes necking and – LOTS of elephants. Sicla did a sport of weeding – prickly plants are alien plants here and they are worried about them spreading. We were collected by a driver from Pembury Tours and dropped off at Port Elizabeth Airport to pick up a hire car for the last week of our trip. It took us 5 hours to drive to Knysna (pronounced Nize-na). We were very conscious of speed cameras all the way – there is zero tolerance on the speed limits here.

Learning Afrikaans: Robots ~(traffic lights); Bleed me dries (mobile phones).

Lowlight – Trust me, you really DO NOT want to get as close as we did to a farting elephant.
