At the country club we saw a family of warthogs. The babies were darling! Who'd have guessed?
On the way to The Ark we came upon a family of elephants.
We also saw two troops of baboons, and a small contingent of impalas - a buck and four does, and a lone oryx.
Once at The Ark, we settled ourselves at one of the viewing windows. There's a watering hole below, and the staff puts out salt to attract the animals.
The Ark has a webcam at the watering hole; if you're interested in seeing what's going on right now, check it out.
Besides elephants, we saw rhinos and cape buffalo. Late-night observers also saw a leopard. Art was up several times during the night with "traveler's disease"; through the window of our room he saw a hyena and a white-tailed mongoose.
I'd heard that elephants have a social community, but I'd never observed these animals except in a zoo. Watching them at the watering hole, though, I could really tell. Babies stood under their mothers or were watched out for by other elephants; young males sparred. The movement of these animals was fluid and unhurried. We were fascinated.
