We rise nice and early for our scheduled sunrise game drive only to find it’s pouring outside. We make our way to front of the lodge as our pickup never showed and find 2 other groups wandering around the front of the lodge as well. What we do not see is anyone there for the drive itself.
After a bunch of back and forth, a phone call or two, we finally get a driver out to speak with us regarding how rain could affect the drive and wildlife. The drive informs us that due to the rain, there is good chance we won’t see as many of the animals as we would have liked. In addition, the drive is now starting 30 minutes late and he is unable to add that 30 minutes back at the end.
Jess and I make a decision for ourselves to forgo the drive that morning, but we did manage to reschedule a morning drive for the next morning, our last day at the lodge. So we walk back to our chalet and catch a few more hours of sleep before heading the afternoon drive.
We saw some great wildlife and I got some great photos as well!
