Nope, they added a day.
Compliments to WTM! He really is good with cardboard, Madach even made photo's of his cutouts on the S100. They looked liked lions....

Good prediction Salva!

Eleven AWD and two rhino's between Satara and Tshokwane. For the rest he reports to see a huge amount of Hyena's.

You just got to love the satara area :dance: .
My fave park area , ok so im a big cat nut and my opinion is biased , but SATARA RULES :!: .

As well as that kruger rewards for that extra night / drive :D

As for oribis , the most noticible thing is there very slender/long neck .
There colouring can be somewhat like a reedbucks , all the way through to that of an impala/steenbucks , but there horns are similar to steenbucks , not curved like reedbuck .
They are nowhere near as big as a reedbuck which is larger than an impala , and there size is between that of an steenbuck and impala , however there long neck can make them look larger .
