I love the vegetation between Phabeni and Skukuza. I love those open woodlands with dry riverbeds and open grassy plains - very diverse and for me, typically Africa.

The ground hornbill sighting was a bit disturbing, as it is clear that they are compulsive and excellent beggars. They were initially about 20 m off the road, but as soon as I stopped they came marching straight to the car, flashing long eye lashes and trying to look as cute as hell. After a few minutes when they saw there tactics were not impressing me to feed them - off they stomped back into the bush.

Update from Jaco. I see he sent it last night at 20:00, somehow I only received it now. Wonder why...

Saw another rhino, loads of zebs and wildebeest, Ellies with young ones, Kori bustards, Ground hornbills.

Best of the day - Lions mating on the S30 (Salitje Road) close to the S128 t-junction. Male started roaring and the kids had eyes the size of dinner plates. :D (Him and SO probably too! :lol: )

Last night - lion roaring outside camp.

Had a great braai with Gwen and SO.

Evening All!!

What a week :D Will start working through my pics and trip log. Will give you a update as soon as work allows :(

We saw Freda on the H4-2 on our way to LS from Crocbridge. Just had enough time to say a quick hello. Next time we will make a plan Freda!!!

We met Gwen on the H10 close to the S128 turn off, to the north of Muntshe. Quite by chance :lol: Then we met up in camp again, and had a nice braai on Wednesday evening.

2 YR sightings!!! I was lucky :lol:

W@H, the springbok is not one off our winning players. All I can say is watch this space :twisted:

In total we saw 13 rhino in a space of 3 days. We did not see any Leopard, or Cheetah, all though they where spotted on roads we travelled on the same day :evil: :(

I am signing off now, will be back later in the week.

Dear GP,

For so long we have been teasing you about the whole Springbok in KNP issue.

Well after my trip last week I now have PROOF that there actually is springbok in KNP!!! I took pictures of a springbok close to the day visitors area at Skukuza.

So from me a hearty apology for ever making fun of you :redface:

I have attached a picture to clear this whole sad state of affairs up.

Image

Again I do apologize

:twisted:

And here I am trying to help a poor little Guinea Pig!!!

Well lets see, She declares war, and then promptly starts using my picture without any agreement from my side. Then she expects me to be a nice guy and allow it???!!!

GP, if I am not mistaken you have my wife's number. If not I can send it again. But you will need more than a skateboard to make mince meat off me!!!

P.S. My lawyer will be contacting you shortly over the royalties due for the use of my picture of the springbok. :evil:

:lol::lol: I could not resist!
