Clouds of the Day: Cumulus, Pannus, Crepuscular Rays and NACREOUS!


First nacreous clouds we’ve seen since 1996 and an unexpected surprise at the start of our game drive.
Here’s a closer view of a nacreous bit.

Critter of the day: Elephant

This big njobvu was another surprise on our game drive. It looked rather cross so we didn’t try to get close.

And another surprise was a huge herd of kudu running away

An impeccably groomed warthog
