Hyenas in the Pride Lands!

But I still haven't seen Mufasa

Our campground area is fenced, although Baylie and I have our doubts about how effective the fencing would be if animals really wanted to get in here. They close the gates at 5:30 and don’t open them again until 7:00 in the morning. The only way to go out at night is with a guided game drive, so we signed up for the sunset drive last night and the sunrise drive this morning. Last night we came across a den of hyenas with a couple of moms and their litters of pups…very cool! We also got a pretty good show of hippos in the river that looked almost exactly like the Disney Jungle Cruise. There was a crocodile hanging out on the bank, so I’m guessing there were more lurking in the water! Sunset was definitely worth the trip.

This morning, however, was not so productive. It was FREEZING! We spent the whole ride just trying to stay huddled under the blanket and we didn’t really see any animals at all. They were all too smart to come out of their warm hiding places I guess. We have been pretty lucky just driving around our own so far, so I am still hoping for lions!

Wifi is still slow and unpredictable, so pictures will have to wait.
