Overnight Hide

Saturday was a long but amazing day. Normal start in the morning at 5.30am and spent most of the morning watching 2 elephants playing in the dam (reservoir).

After lunch I was in the Overnight hide with Nigel and Martin. The Overnight hide is probably one of the best constructed hides in the world. It overlooks a small watering hole but has 4 bunkbeds, a proper toilet, a kitchen, electricity and running water.

It’s situated deep in the reserve and once you are in, you are in though it does have wifi too so you can update blogs etc and use an internet phone for emergencies. It has 2 led floodlights that remain on all night and once you work out the camera settings the results are stunning. We took shifts between us through the night, the signal to wake was the sound of a camera shutter rattling away. We were in for 18 hours and the time flew by. Im in there again on Tuesday night and can’t wait. Our only mammal visitors in the dark were Wildebeest and Zebra so hoping for better things on Tuesday as the Lions have moved over to that region.
