Left for Kgalagadi at 7am...our friend who travelled with us are not early birds :roll:
Got to Keimoes at 4pm...stayed at a lovely B&B...name is Kokerboom Lodge. Second time we stayed there...lovely setting and the hosts were wonderful...needless to say we had to much to drink and
eat there :lol:
The lady rehabilitate injured little animals and birds...then set them free when they are healthy.
She has got a little vervet monkey who was rescued from a township. She knows she cannot let him go into the wild as he is a male and the wild males will kill him if he tries to join a troop. So she has made arrangements for when he is older to go to a "Rescue" farm where animals can go who cannot be released into the wild again..
Here is a photo of Karoulus sitting on my chair looking for fleas in my hair....

On the way we saw these 2 chaps passing us while having our mid morning tea and snacks...
Image
At the back was written "So What" :lol:
Image
Arrived at Twee Revieren at 12pm...a bit early....
Got our keys to our bungalows...unpacked...had lunch then a nice sleep 8)
Our other friends arrived at 4pm...after they unpacked we all went for a drive to Samevloeing...
Travelled a bit down the Nossop river...
Saw these 2 Secretary birds on their nests...
Image
Turned around to go back to camp....
This kitty came strolling down the road...walking with a mission...only photo we could get as it did not look at us :(
Image

Went to the restaurant for supper...was very nice and the staff was friendly :D

After trying to get the "gang" awake...cheez they are late sleepers :shock:
Decided to tell the first timers there and then "You do NOT sleep late in a game park :evil: Up early...you can have a snooze in the afternoon :lol:
On our way to Kalahari Tented camp....
Image
Early in the morning and some Springbok is already under the shade...
Image
Male Ostrich showing off his feathers....
Image
Further on these males were chasing the female....
Image
Still trying to see who is going to be her mate...
Image
Further on saw these young ones....all feeding...
Image
Carried on for a while when we saw these Cheetah...they were on the other side of the river.....watching some game...
Image
ImageImage
They then decided to flop down for a sleep....
Just before Aughterloni we saw these Springbok walking towards the waterhole....
Image
At the waterhole this dad and young ones were feeding...
Image
This Gemsbok gave us the look "what are you looking at"...
Image
Further down saw this whirlwind....
Image
Got to Kalahari camp...wow what a lovely camp 8)
