We spent 5 night at Pretoriouskop 28th Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 2nd Jan. arrived via Malelane to hot weather. Rain started that afternoon and lasted most of the night. First time we have been unable to cook supper! 29th and 30th mostly overcast with odd shower. Brightened up New Years eve and New Years day.
The bush around PÃ¢â‚¬â„¢kop is lovely and green and lush again, not like September. Grass not as long as last year.
We had some great sightings Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I won the spotting contest with Jan, lions 2 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ rhinos 16.
I have loaded some photos on flickr (see below) so just a few highlights,

Lots of lovely Kudu, Water Buck and babies everywhere. ( Impala, Wildebeest, Buffalo, Warthog, Hyena, Zebra)
