The elephants trying to get the kids across the river were immensely entertaining - and a tad less frightening than meeting a hippo at the side of the road. We stopped between it and the river assuming it had heard us and it was just strolling along unconcerned until it looked up and saw us. It stopped dead in its tracks with a surprised look on its face, reversed back the way it was coming, stared at us and snorted it's very clear displeasure before walking a little further down the road before crossing. Thankfully Kevin read all the signs of a potentially deadly charge and moved the vehicle back to give it more room.
A little later on we were beer in hand by an open fire with Nick as we watched the sunset followed by a great dinner, again with our host Nick. We learn that we are the only guests in the camp during our stay for another 3 nights. Katavi camp is much more than we could have hoped for.
