The Return

The Return

After spending 2 weeks in Cape Town and around, I'm ready to go to the Kgalagadi... alone from 14 to 26.10.2014... then accompagnied by my nephew... till 14.11.2014

Kgalagadi alone 14 to 26.10.2014

14/15.10.2014 Twee Rivieren

Completely excited to finally be back in the Kgalagadi, it is impossible for me to sleep. I test my new toy, a brand new modem which 5 mobile/tablet/lap top can connect, it was the only one that suit my new laptop, and that took us several hours/days in Cape Town to get it. Everything works fine, except that the connections are ... well ... hard :shock:

Wonderful!!! Another trip report from anne-marie! :dance: :dance:

Awesome sightings right from the start anne-marie! Great shot of the Black-chested Snake Eagle in flight, and what a beautiful Cape Cobra! Definitely on my wishlist for our upcoming Kgalagadi trip, but preferably also from the Hilux's window! :clap: :clap:

Beautiful bird sightings, as well as the cute Bat-eared Foxes! My favourite though, the Striped mousies! :dance: :dance:

Looking forward to the next episode! :popcorn:
