It is with much excitement that we are now able to provide you with GoPro video footage of some of the activities on offer in the Kruger National Park. You are now able to experience the thrill of a mountain bike trail, come in contact with the bush on a morning walk, see incredible sights on a morning drive and participate in many more activities, all right here on the forums. The footage is provided by Lourens Botha, Head Field Guide at Olifants Rest Camp who, by filming his excursions, affords us this exciting opportunity. Lourens makes use of the GoPro cameras that were purchased with donations made by forum members and facilitated by the Virtual Honorary Rangers. A big thank you to all involved in making this happen! :dance:

As Lisef has already said, the majority of the money used to buy this camera and equipment, was donated by forum members. :clap: :clap:
