We drove in from Ulundi and as soon as we drove through the gate and done the formalities we found a huge giraffe standing in the road. It was an amazing moment. Later more giraffes and zebras, and then - astonishing for us certainly - two families of white rhino. And then as we approached Hilltop Camp another rhino walking straight down the road towards us! Only one elephant on the first day...... After a great night at Hilltop and a fantastic breakfast, we transferred to Mpila - a wonderful bush tent! Some wildlife on the way and we were getting used to warthog and hyena. Then late afternoon we set off to drive round a loop in the river, and in the course of 45 minutes we encountered a group of 7 rhino, then a small herd of buffalo, and then just round the corner a sizeable herd of elephants crossing the road, which was both terrifying and exhilarating! It was now getting dark and we needed to get back to camp. As we drove up the hill, something feline crossed the track. We stopped and a young leopard stood staring at us for a few moments before disappearing into the bush. Extraordinary!
