Days Ten and Eleven - Just Another Day in the Desert

2nd and 3rd October 2011

We spent day ten driving up the bed of the River Nossob. It gets wet once in a blue moon, by that I mean the last time you could get your knees wet while stood in it was 2000 and before that was 1974! We saw plenty of game but no cats. Braai, beer, bed.
Day eleven was the jopurney from Nossob to Mata Mata. Another pleasant day. We saw Red Hartebeest, Wildebeest, Kori bustards (the heaviest flying bird on the planet,) Ostrich and eighteen chicks (even heavier but no flying,) another mummy cheetah with her ‘yoofs’ and a whole load of Gemsbok. (Super-cool looking, swash buckling Samurai style warrior beasties that act a bit like horses with five foot javelins super glued onto their heads.)
Another swim, another braai, another beer and five days of journal caught up on.
