It was time to say goodbye to Jaci's Tree Lodge,
my "home" for the past three days.
This male Bushbuck was there to see me off
I discovered areas on the property that I had not seen during my short visit in November, 2012
Like this secluded spot.
I used this path on several occasions to get to Jaci's Safari Lodge
where the Internet was working.
Unfortunately(or fortunately as it turned out) the Internet was down at Tree Lodge due to a cable fault
HOWEVER...this should be fixed within the next few days...
I photographed this on my last visit as well.
I forgot to ask what it was then...and I forgot again on this trip!
If any of the management team can enlighten me, I will be very grateful
The leafy walkways are still lit by paraffin lamps,
even though there is electricity available at the lodge
This is what Charis and I found when we got to Eastern Airstrip
to await the arrival of my return Federal Air flight
Rangers from different camps waiting for new guests
And here comes our plane.
However, if you look carefully in the left hand corner you will see a Blue Wildebeest
casually making its way across the runway...
And banks into a steep turn to try the approach again
This time one of the rangers keeps an eye open for the offending animal
