Monday, April 13 - Day 70 - Addo Elephant National Park
Sometime after 7AM it is time to acknowledge the world and our plan for an early morning game drive is in jeopardy. We make some tea, oh how Dick would like a good cup of his own coffee, and head out for an hour or two before breakfast.
Dick fixes cocktails and we relax on the patio and watch the animals still gathered at the water hole as the sun disappears. Carolyn had made a double serving last night so she doesn’t have much to do to get dinner ready. As we sit down to eat we hear some dog like sounds, maybe a jackal. Then, just as we finish eating we hear a lion...Jack says, "OK, it is time to go inside!" The weather seems to be changing...clouds gathered late this afternoon and now there seems to be a mist settling in the bowl off the patio and it is getting much cooler. Time to call it a night. We have really enjoyed this park. It is small and there is not as large a variety of animals, but we have been able to really get up close to the ones that are here. Plus it is just a really beautiful place! We could have enjoyed another night at least. Next time!
