MB : 2nd trips

This is our 2nd trips to MB. It was 3 days and 2 nights camping in the area (29-31 of July 2016). I concluded this trip was successful compared to our previous trip in 2015 (17-19 April 2015). We encountered more butterflies than beetles, amphibians and other animals. You can view my post of the previous trip here.
We are being informed by the staff of MB that a group of elephant is around the area and we are advised to take early precaution for safety. Were are also being informed that those elephant are not dangerous by the way.

Along the way from the main entrance, we drop by and stop our vehicles (1 Landcruiser 80 and 1 Hilux) to photograph butterflies again and again. The road condition (no pavement yet) are getting better except for motorcars. Only a few points of the road got muddy. A standard 4×4 vehicle should have no problem to get through.

So, lets the following photos continue the history of our findings:
