Hi,

I have an internet connection today.

Sorry my english is not good. :roll:
kTN yess it is KTP (I do a mix between Kgalagadi and Kruger)
Serpentary = secretary (In french, The name is Serpentaire)

Mark, I don't know if you received my second sms ? (Yesterday night)

Here under the second sms:
" Plenty Jackals in KTP - Yesterday we saw 4 cheetah at 2 km from Nossob Restcamp - 1 african Wild cat in a tree at Craig Lockhardt (Waterhole) - 4 snakes on the road (Mole snake, Cape cobra ...) - 1 male lion near Auchterionle (Waterhole) "

Today, between TR and Leewdril (Waterhole) we saw a female african wild cat with 3 cubs.

Kgalagadi is fantastic.

Next sms in Kruger.

La lionne
