The afternoon is spend at the waterhole, watching rhino and hippo less than 100 yards away.

My camera did not participate as Nettie and I prepare for supper, when we complete day 18 we will add pics from the archives, while editing and publishing all posts.

Cedric & Nettie love the ambience of the camp, the accommodation, the space to enjoy yourself around the fire, plus the access to the animals.

And then a close encounter with a rhino.

On our way back to St Lucia, we get a close look at 3 white rhino,

St Lucia, one of our touristy stops, thanks to the snorkelling experience, where, once you are under the water, you are no longer a tourist, and then the unexpected close encounter with rhino, brings the magic to our 3 night stop, 

Day 9 coming soon
