Packed up and left Balule at 06h45 with a wish to return next year for a 5 day stay. We will have to get a 12v freezer for the car which we should invest in anyway.
We arrived at Letaba at 07h45, found a great spot against the fence, under a huge tree, with plenty of shade.
Set up camp for a 13 night stay. I cannot get a satellite signal for DSTV as I cannot get a clear view of the sky, to many trees in the way. We will just have to go without news and sport for 2 weeks. Will have to watch the Stormers Bulls game at the TV room in camp, could be quite festive. There is only 2G at Letaba so internet will be a bit slow. So posts will be short. Hyaena patrolling the fence as usual.
Day 33 13 May
Slept late for a change, fiddled with satellite dish to try and get reception, no luck.
Took an afternoon drive to Phalaborwa to stock up on supplies, far too expensive at the park shops.
A cooler day with the temperature around 27 C
On the way back we ran into a pack of 8 Wild dogs on the Phalaborwa Letaba (H9) tar road about 10 Km from camp.
This is the highlight of our trip so far. The last time we saw Wild Dog in the park was at Lower Sabie way back in 2004. Victoria you will remember this as it was the time when you came with us.
Spent the afternoon photographing and watching their behavior patterns, got back to camp just in time before gates closed.
What a day!
