The rangers at the park entrance gate were very welcoming, I don't think they get many visitors, especially driving a British registered car. Once in the park we saw an elephant, a few giraffe and some bush buck, not much else. We got to the campsite – it is great, the first thing is it is empty, it is right on a huge sandy beach and the loos are clean, what more could you want. Actually we could have done with less wind as whilst warm and sunny it was blowing a gale so we had to pitch our tent in the lee of the cooking house (a sort of large bus shelter with a tap, sink and food prep area.
We booked for a game walk in the morning and then had a bit of a drive round – didn't see much. I collected wood from the beach for the fire and Gill cooked another good meal on the open fire. Whilst sitting in the dark by the fire a warthog hurried by and a small cat which might have been a civet.
