We started this morning out with another sighting of a cheetah (2) (3) (4), which we followed for quite a while. We saw him stalking some prey and almost (2) (3) (4) make lunch out of a gazelle.

We then drove to the area known as the Hippo (2) Pools. We were able to get out of the Land Rover and I also was able to see a baboon and a very large crocodile.

Shortly after noon, we left for a flight to Mombasa, on a twin-prop plane, which took off from a airstrip in the middle of the game reserve (no customs, no terminal/baggage claim, no air control tower, just a gravel runway). We are now staying at the Serena Beach Hotel in Mombasa.
