DAY NINE ~ Where is Everybody?

Today we took a drive over the Chaimu Lava Flow to the Chulyu Gate, along tracks we have not covered since 2008. Along the way, we detoured along the tracks by Kuldip's Ponds again and photographed Ibis, Martial Eagle and Sandpiper, plus some very obliging Vulturine Guinea Fowl. On the return trip, we came across Impala, Bushbuck, Waterbuck, Dik Dik, Masai Giraffe and a few Elephants in the distance.

The strange thing about today was how quiet everything was. We hardly saw any other vehicles and a lot less wildlife than normal (although still many times more than we would see in the same length of time in the UK!). We did, however, finally meet up with some old friends; the family of Rock Hyrax that live around the Bandas.
