Hearing about the arrival of large herds of zebra from the south, we set out quite early to see if we could find them. The scene was already set for us with clear blue skies, and lovely, soft green grass, so when we found the zebras, it was easy-shooting for the cameras. Massive herds of zebra, which had been joined by lots of topi were scattered all around the plains. In between all the zebra’s legs, we found a small bat-eared fox hidden in the grass, and again, up in the trees, a pride of lions. Late in the afternoon, we spent a lot of time around the river enjoying the many crocodiles and hippos, and in a first for FiveZero Safaris, we spotted some black-and-white colobus monkeys high in the treetops! A wonderful barbeque dinner was waiting for us when we returned, closely followed by a very comfortable nights sleep.
