Back home in JHB :cry: but we had a great trip and saw loads of game and some exellent sightings. Thanks Mark for the updates. I will do a detailed trip report asap, right now i'm catching up on work.
The WILD DOG were great and to see them not even a km from LS camp was great.
Nice meeting Nightowl and then I bumped into dirk at Nkhulu picnic site. No yellow ribbon on his vehicle :evil: but he explained the boss does not like it so he is forgiven.
Photies and pics to come.
