A day in the Majete Wildlife Reserve…
Up early for a jeep ride and guided walk in the park with good sightings :6 sorts of deer eg..impala and the bigger water buck. Varied birds. Plenty of warthog, zebra , elephants, baboons, hippos …but only lion footprints and black rhino dung. After welcome swim at a hot lunchtime went on a boat trip very close to huge crocs and bathing elephants overlooked by vervet monkeys. Warm atmospheric late afternoon walk by river near lodge saw a fishermans in a dug out canoe pick up 5 fish from nets..the park ranger told us a fisherman had disappeared from the water and a cow within the last couple of years (crocs) so I guess this man was desperate for his dinner
