Don't forget that digital zoom on something half a mile away distorts it. I have some magnificent digital eagles on video :oops:

And here we are. Addo National Park. No sightings yet cause we haven't gone anywhere. Just settling in.


I am sure they will see and hear much even just from their safari tent - they have such a beautiful view out over Addo.

And... they got the tent they requested! :D

... but you can't really see the waterhole from any of them, but we have the best view and I think the nicest spot.
Jackals crying far off now. Dunno if waterhole will be more visible at night.
Very overcast and a bit chilly. ... Just being here is cool. More than cool.

There was a huge owl sitting about 10 meters from our tent just now. Also masses of eyes off in the distance, not sure what. Probably eland.

I may have this wrong but I'm getting the distinct impression that they're enjoying themselves! :D
