This was the last full day of this trip.
Once again in the morning we made our way over the dunes.
This was one of the rare occasions when a male Korhaan stopped log enough for a pic,:lol: Larger View
We checked the waterholes,and found nothing….
Just after we had passed Monro we spotted two Bat-Eared Foxes in the riverbed.
They were excited to say the least.
They were calling hysterically and so we searched the area for some larger predators, without success.
Nevertheless it was a great sighting of the Bat-Eared Foxes…. Larger View Larger ViewBat-Eared Foxes
Of course we sighted "our" Meerkats yet again… Larger View Larger View Larger View Larger ViewMeerkats
After spotting Ludwig’s Bustards this year for the first time, we kept seeing them again and again and again… Larger View
And of course I could not resist, another of my favourite Agamas. Larger View
We wanted to have a small breakfast at Auchterlonie.
Just as we reached the waterhole, we discovered that a Springbok has been killed during the night.
No sign of a Predator around and already the Springboks and Oryx were back again for a drink. Larger View
We had a nice brekkie at Auchterlonie with some guests. Larger View
But we did not feel too comfortable, as we always had the dead Springbok in mind, and were asking ourselves, if maybe the Predator was still around…
We stopped again at the carcass on the way back.
This time two Jackals were having their share. Larger View Larger ViewJackals and Springbok
A little further south we found these two PCG’s in a tree.
We kept our eyes open for a Honeybadger, but there was none.. Larger View
And even further on a Meerkat Sentinel in an obvious comfy postion Larger ViewSentinel
At Houmoed we stopped (as always....) at the lookout point north of the waterhole.
Isn’t this Double-banded Courser very well camouflaged?! Larger View
We stopped again at Samevloeiing on the way back to camp.
As I said before, I am always surprised to spot Waterbirds in an environment like the Kalahari. Larger View
Time for the afternoon siesta.
Again we were very happy to have an air-condition….
Later that afternoon we started again for our last afternoon drive.
And yes there were the Meerkats again. Larger View
Later we found him, a Capped Wheatear. Larger View
And a Crow, that tried to open one of the Cocoons of the Kalahari Silk Moth. Larger View
And just shortly before we reached Houmoed a farewell meeting with the Meerkats. Larger View
At Houmoed itself we stopped for a Jackal and some Sandgrouses. Larger View Larger View
On the way back to camp, we stopped at the t-junction to the Nossob direction.
And the Kalahari showed us once more her beauty, with one of those wonderful moody sunset landscapes. Larger View
What an end to our last day in the park.
Tomorrow we will only be able to drive for a few hours before returning back to Upington and the outer world…..
