All around, lions and trick of the light.

1. Rosey and I climb the tower in the campsite -- it’s an old fort -- and look out over the park. In all directions we can see black clouds slashed with lightning. The sky below them is blurred with rain. We set out on a game drive in the opposite direction to the storms and when we turn back we can see the tower surrounded by dark clouds.

2. A pride of lions ranging over the airstrip. Big game isn’t everything, but the four who joined at Livingstone haven’t seen lions yet. They cross the road and stroll through the grass and we watch until they are out of sight.

3. We get caught in the rain again, but the sun comes out and makes a rainbow and long shadows for us.
