Day 10 October 23

Another restful sleep and great wakeup to lots of chirping birds. The leopard was around last night , lots of tracks. Even as we eat breakfast we are off to a great start. The zebras are enjoying morning in the savannah.

Tail-less warthog. Meresu said – some large animal probably grabbed him by the tail and it broke off as he escaped. Loss of danger signal… oops….
