Our arrival from another camp was a bit late, so the camp manager, Dave, rushed us into the bush truck without offering lunch. We had been on the road six hours and he finally relented, giving us the lunch that had been prepared for us and must have been sitting in the kitchen. Off we went and had a great drive, with rhinos, elephants along the river, giraffes, and the usual impalas, etc. on the way back, we even spotted a small pride of lions. Next day's morning drive featured a recent kill by three lions, which was terrific. After that we saw almost nothing for 5 straight drives. Maybe just terrible luck, but we would have been much better off just enjoying camp. Another problem was that the ranger had scheduled destinations, such as a sunset viewing, and because he was late, we had to endure 10 minutes of bone jarring travel. On the good side, rooms were fantastic and food very good. Some game came onto grounds, which was fun.
