First of all , thanks for all the replys
Now , where was I , sorry to take so long , but I was trying to get pics processed and onto odp so I could add them here , I don't trust flickr to much .
Jackal on dead Eland near TR -
13th borehole attracted lots and lots of game when the lions where not hogging it , I wonder if the water is sweeter here than elsewhere (or less salty) .
The ground squirrels seem pretty abundant , unlike the meerkats which I never found
I love the way they form an "umbrella" with there tails to protect them from the sun .
This one was eating on some sort of succulent bush .
On my last mornings drive out from Matta Matta , I eventually hit the jackpot with the 13th borehole crowd , and the cubs where in photographic range , although the sun was in a bit of an awkward spot .
Here one of the older cubs walks with mom .
I was only able to get a few pics of the other male in this prides coalition one morning at 14th borehole .
He seemed to be very camera shy , and preferred to hang about on the highest dune tops surveying his territory !
The giraffe up there are really confused , It must be the heat
And then to finish up my Matta Matta set , another 13th borehole visitor -
All in all , I found the Matta Matta area very charming , I must book for there next September for the kids holidays .
I bet the boys will love the hide , and the waterhole to go look about at with there torches at night .
I will try construct the last part of my report from TR a little more lucidly , sorry if the above seems like the ultra condensed forum digest version
