hi everyone

Sorry for being absent these last few days. I had an operation done on my right hand. All is better now and I can continue with adding video clips.


This little one is holding so tight, even though he's fast asleep

When we visited Pretoriuskop last year, we arrived a bit early in camp and had to wait about 1 hour for our keys. So we went to the swimming pool and relaxed on the benches. We saw this little baboon playing around and trying to get the attention of the monkeys. It was really entertaining

Still enjoying all the pictures people are posting at the moment of the Cricket@Kgalagadi, I wanted to post this clip of my nephew Gerharddb singing at last years Cricket@Skukuza prize giving dinner.

The Cricket@Skukuza 2012 weekend was a fantastic one, sightings wise. I saw my first wild dogs then. And to top it all, we shared it with lots and lots of forum mites. Almost all the cars at the sighing was mites, heading for the cricket fields early Saturday morning.




A few days before the Cricket my friend (kwikstertjie) and I entered Kruger and we had lots of luck with the predators

Kwikstertjie and I was fortunate enough to get 2 nights at one of the perimeter tents at Lower Sabie. We had a marvellous time. When we had our braai lit and both enjoyed our sundowners, a huge herd of elephants passed right in front of our Tent. I quickly went to fetch our neighbours who didn't have a river view, to join us. It was too good of a sighting to enjoy alone

I like to watch this clip just because of the sound of the water.

We stayed in a family cottage with a river view at Olifants camp and had a great view. We were entertained with these little mongooses every morning

Sjame, being a lion, living in the Satara area means you'll always have lots and lots of followers

I just love ellies. The youngsters can be so playful and always puts a smile on my face. These youngsters enjoyed chasing the animals around.

There had been some pouching activities where one of sanparks game rangers was shot by poachers. The helicopter came to pick up the doctor as well as someone from the anti poaching team.
While playing the anti pouching team returned.
