Addo Elephant National Park

It was pouring rain but we were hungry and had no food so walked for about 20 minutes to a restaurant for breakfast and splurged on bacon and eggs. Yum

Back at the hostel we met our guide for the day and drove to Addo Elephant National park. What a great day! We saw lots of elephants and even saw a young lion hunt and kill a baby wart hog. It rained most of the morning but cleared in the afternoon. The lack of heat made the animals that much more active so it was great. In this case, pictures speak much better than words ever could.
