7th Got ready early for the shuttle to get the Baz Bus in Howick, but it didn't come, so stayed another day at Sani Lodge. Went on a good long slow loop hike up Stromness Peak. Great views and flowers. Followed down by a pair of baboons! Had to walk thru a marshy area at the end and saw an otter! Lots of birds too. Back to the Lodge before the rain. Good fun talking with the internationals til bed.
