The most frequent sightings today were of bushbuck. Bushbuck are a species of antelope, and there are several varieties. Some are spotted, but the ones at Mole National Park are not.
Bushbuck are extremely wary. If they were anywhere near the road, they would scatter even if the Land Rover paused for me to take a photo. This group was quite a distance from the road but ever watchful.
Further down the road, we began to see overflowing creeks. In a few spots, there was a fair amount of water on the road.
We continued, with the obnoxious tse-tse flies making things very unpleasant.
The flies were annoying to the point that I asked Stanley to turn back before the two hours were up.
Next time I visit Mole, I’ll come in the dry season.
We headed back to the motel.
