Departed at dawn and slept at our previous place at the waterfall. Eiheep the Geisiqua and Naugha the Kaukeis turned back. The same weather and wind.
Because of low water still nothing to see at the waterfall. Pienar arrived all bloody: having chased a giraffe and wounded it but fell from his horse with the saddle.
