The dogs were off to an early start having travelled quite a distance by the time I caught up with them at dawn. They were keen running far and wide.
But their enthusiasm soon fizzled out and they took an early nap around 8am. I was sure they’d be on the move again, but no such joy. They spent the resting under mopanie bushes. Not much excitement there for me!
It was another misty dawn, but this time the cloud was localised and drifted through as puffs on the wind and it wasn’t long when it had all burnt off and I was treated to a wonderful sunny day.
My short visit to Bandama pan turned up a few giraffe and zebra coming in for their daily drink.
It was back to the dogs in the afternoon and still they were a lethargic bunch. Only about 10mins before sunset did they get active. They were now fully awake and keen to take on anything. And this they did, chasing a warthog boar, then some kudu and eventually some impala. But a little hunger continued to haunt them when I finally had to give up on them after dark.
