KarenB you are gonna LOVE it! :thumbs_up: It took us quite a few visits to KNP before we discovered it - but since then, a visit to Lake Panic is a MUST if we are in the area! :wink:

Just don't tell too many people... It's starting to get quite crowded there at times... :whistle:

KarenB, if you are going this weekend, you might bump into Jan van Wyk as he will be there in next 3 days. I am actually :mrgreen: :mrgreen:. You are going to love it - a tip: do not just go in thinking nothing is happening. You have to spend time there as the action will come to you. Be also on the look-out for the resident leopard between the Lake Panic turn off and the staff village turn-off on the tar road.

Enjoy it and let us know how you have experienced it. :thumbs_up:

Thank you for comments - it is appreciated.

On the far side of the lake, the hippos like to enjoy some sunbathing and now and then there is some action taking place accompanied with heavy grunting - beautiful Lake Panic music.

Thank you for the comments.

Kaapsedraai super fly by image. :clap: :clap: and great image of the resident Hippos :clap:

The best time to photograph a sunrise at LP is during wintertime.

This one is a reminder of the beautiful sunrise from last year and can't wait to visit LP for 6 days in a row :dance: :dance:

Only 2 days to go.... LP deliver always....

Kaapsedraai, what a superb picture of the Hippos at Lake Panic, with all the Water Lilies in front! :clap: :clap:

Jan, that is the most beautiful sunrise that I have seen in a very long time, and, as you know, all sunrises or sunsets are beautiful, but this one is brilliant! :clap: :clap:

Jan and hilda - thank you for kind comments. :thumbs_up:

Jan - you must enjoy the days at LP and we are looking forward to some great photos. I wish I could be there hence feel a bit :mrgreen: . Nevertheless, drive safely and enjoy every minute at the 'Lake'. :thumbs_up:

In May'09 during our 1st visit to Kruger, this view made me fell in love with LP...
