Thanks guys, :thumbs_up: Yes the jeep broke down due the bad work done by a very reputable company on my Radiator, :evil: Instead of cooling unit, it was heating unit, much like the coolerboxes that you get when you change wires around. :slap:

Dan, I offered him a cold one, :D

Well, lotsa lions on last nights drive, also some other interesting stuff that I will relate on the daily report. :whistle:

Some mist over Longtom, during the day. :big_eyes:

Jeeeeez, please somebody save me from the lions, I am tired of lions the past 2 days. :twisted:

But yes, the culprits that stuffed the Jeep, they are paying and fixing, :whistle:

Then off to 4 more SANParks, maybe Bearded Vulture, Palmnut vulture(Non Sanparks) some whales, and anything else to offer in the next 10 days. :hmz:

NOW, can anybody point me to a cheetah!!!!!!! Lions get boring ha-ha :doh:

Had a nice, very hot, weekend with our guests this weekend. Saw the big 5 in the Pretoriuskop area on Saturday, including a leopard on the night drive. It was WOW!!

Had another sighting as well... Bert drove past the night drive vehicle as we were leaving camp :twisted: But, by the time we got back in camp he was sound asleep as there were no lights on anymore. :(

Scipio now on tour with his guests to some of the other parks in South Africa, but will be back in Kruger on the 28th of November.

Ok, so if you need to go to Golden Gate, take the detour and go via Bethlehem, and all the Animals in Karoo was eaten by the lions that is now in a zoo in Holland. Tomorrow t other Sanparks. Pics will follow, I promise.

Hiya AM, the bridge on the road to Golden Gate collapsed just before Phutaditjaba, the detour is really bad. :wink: And I did not see a lot in Karoo today LOL. 8)

But tomorrow some other parks. But in the meantime, some more random pics.

Night Drive time:

Many years ago, this rock was an emblem, used by the National parks, I always searched for it in Kruger, and only realised by 5years old, where it was. :D

Well, looking at the pic:

1) It is the vehicle of a certain Birdie Mod,
2) It is in kruger.
3) It has NO Yellow Ribbon. :big_eyes:
4) It is very clean, taking into consideration the recent rains.

Image

Now:
1) It could be they were busy at the time, and did not want to be desturbed by fellow mites, especially taking into considiration the Anniversary. :twisted:
2) Hawk is fairly whipped, so he was washing the car all day, and needed rest, and also forgot to tie the YR back(Hope not, Aunti Deebee can get tough on him then) :tongue:
3) Or, they were on some underhanded mission, trying to catch other forumites.
4) Or she knew I was coming to Letaba. :slap:

Hiya Dan, yes, the language is fit for a Army Camp from PetraJ with the Ellies. :doh:

First pic is taken a while back, first Impie baby for the year I have seen. Then they all just popped out in the last few days. :thumbs_up:
