 Post subject: Richprins delivering "Holy Grail" to Skukuza
Unread postPosted: Mon Aug 06, 2007 9:49 pm 
For those confused, check "Birding" thread on "Chit Chat".

I'm so excited! Visiting Kruger some day within the next fortnight, still don't know when!

Have taken my car in for panelbeating today. Should be ready for Wednesday.

Will keep you updated.

(Taken near Mazithi Dam north of Tshokwane on 13 Dec 2004. Not really my car. Victim of a car/car accident.)

timbo, the uncle is delivering a pair of binoculars sponsored by Bushnell and organised by Mohammad to another uncle called "Bishop", who is a guide in Skukuza.

Mrs Richprins says if that is the naughtiest picture you've seen in your life, she is happy, so she's given me permission to go! Yay!

OK, jokes aside.

The plan is to meet Bishop, KNP Spokesman and an unidentified forumite at Skukuza tomorrow afternoon, for the "presentation".

Will try to post pics tomorrow night.

On "Bird Club" thread.

OK, here it comes. Worked my arse off to get there and back today. But I'll survive.

CC, I'm allergic to cats.

Someone else's legs.

So my potential forumite friend and I entered at speed at Numbi around 14h00.

Lot of burnt area, as per W@H's report. Had a ridiculously tiny camera, but amazing results!

And then this. Transport dam holding up quite well! Give it another month and a half.

Giraffe outside Lake Panic.

Image

Wildebeest on Doispane road.

Image

Image

Same big herd of rhinos at Nyamundwa dam, I guess!

Image

And another big 5 (Doispane road)

Image

The perfect end to a perfect day!

Image



And then back to reality...

Still the sighting of the day:

(My first ever Serval pic, after 20 years.)
