03 January 2010: Early December in the Timbavati Reserve brought some heavy rainfall, and mud wallows presented great opportunities to
see elephant and buffalo have a glorious time splashing around and cooling off. We have not had rain for the past two weeks, so the wallows are
drying up – this wallow is almost dry. We are always advising guests not to leave their shoes, wallet or camera bag in the dining tent or on their tent decks.
We of course forgot this good advice, and a spotted hyena decided to snack on Dave’s wallet which was left on the dining room table. Fortunately, he did not sink his teeth into the VISA card. The wallet was left lying out at the fireplace in Shindzela Camp!
