The penultimate climb up these stairs to our game drive vehicle.
We would have to do this "climb" once more when we left the lodge.
The open road lay ahead...
WE knew what we would really like to see,
but would those species be forthcoming?
Only time would tell.
The wind picked up during the drive and
as a result, the animals seemed to disappear to take shelter
This African Spoonbill continued to feed.
Game viewing had slowed to a trickle,
which meant that I was prepared to take pictures of ANYTHING that moved...
Like this Ostrich.
AND THEN we got the call over the radio that we had been waiting for!
Our final sighting...
A posse of water terrapins on a rock.
One last breakfast before heading back to the airport at East London
and our flight back to Johannesburg.
A great ending to a wonderful trip.
