After that brutal flight to Johannesburg, a night in a hotel, a commuter flight to Polokwane, and a charter flight to Mashatu, I was finally there. And after getting settled in, having high tea (wish that was a custom in this country!!), we went out on our first game drive which always begins in late afternoon. We encountered this bull elephant who decided that piece of road was his. And as the last rays of the sun crossed the landscape in this little corner of heaven in southeastern Botswana, I could feel myself relax in the warm evening air. And before we returned for dinner, we encountered ‘my’ dogs. Fortunately for me, they had been hanging around fairly close to Main Camp.
