We survived our journey up to the north to one of the national parks here. It was quite enjoyable. Maeve and Kieran did not kill each other on the 8-hour trip up or back, and I only got mildly annoyed with Guy once. We saw lots of animals - antilopes of all kinds, monkeys, baboons, warthogs, crocodiles, hippos, and lions. We literally happened upon three of the latter as we were slowing waaaay down to drive down a little stone embankment in the road, and they were right there. The minute they saw us they got up and started to walk away. Amazing. Our guide said most people don't even get to see one lion, so we were incredibly lucky. We did not have so much luck with elephants. We saw their tracks and fresh poop, but none of them -- the largest creatures in the park.
