I think we have a lull in the action. So much for relaxing before bedtime...now I'm all hyped up.

Here comes the jeep again. A little late for the good stuff. My arse woulda been up an hour ago!

We keep posting at the same time! I have just learned my first request at camp will be to come and pick my arse up the minute something is out there, no matter the time. Are you still hearing roars??

Had to pour a glass of wine after that...I will never get to sleep now. Wish I was there too. This was the best night I have seen so far. Going to Pete's to take a peak, God help me!!!

Carla, is this the same carcass from a couple of days ago? Can't believe I missed all the action yesterday! The first night in ages I went to bed early - that'll teach me...!

Last night was so exciting. There is a re-cap on the Africam Forum of the entire episode where you can see all the videos and sounds if you are interested. Just re-reading all the posts here was fun.

There is not much left of the buffalo. That was so amazing to witness. I was reading they think he died of a respiratory problem and there is a video where you can hear a buffalo the night before breathing very heavy. They had temperatures over 100 degrees those days. That is all I know, it has been an educational 2 days.

Thank-you, Carla, the videos were amazing. Though I did cry for the old buffalo, poor thing, that tribute was touching. And all the animals gathering 'round...I don't think I could have slept after that! Those silhoueettes of the lions in front of the camp were Frightening!!!!

...an electrical storm over the waterhole, quite dramatic! But could that be fire in the distance, to the left? The light was flickering earlier, and hasn't disappeared...
