What a frustrating drive, especially if you on your way to Kruger.
The good thing, you made it safely.
Great rhino sightings and not just one, but 2 with both white and black...wow
The bird photos are just as great. Thank you for sharing and look forward to more...
Did you spot the scop owl at Afsaal? I was there mid Dec'12, but did not see it...any investigation done on its whereabouts?
We did do some investigation regarding the Scops Owl at Afsaal. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful too. I've noticed that they do not put out markings around the tree where the owl is anymore. I've wondered if that was to get less people bothering it, or whether they just don't do it anymore, or whether the owl is not around anymore? All these possibilities should be investigated...
a pity was that we were already in the far North when you were in the Far South
Great rhino sightings especially for the blackie and for sure love the birdies
Great start and I am ready for more
What a pitty indeed!
After reading your summary of what you did NOT see on your trip, it seems you were investigating in the wrong region at the wrong time. We were quite lucky with our investigation!
wow a Black Rhino
... and an European
Sure enough, the Europeans will be returning to you soon, to report on all the action from KNP!
Great start to your trip report.
Is almost like the tv series, "24", if you have ever seen that? "The following takes place beween 1pm and 2pm"
But double the time.
SO has apparently heard of the series. Hope this TR will be just as loved as the series apparently is!
Oh you know us, melphie - with the Bushbuddies on the case, it is unlikely that any evidence will be overlooked!

Bushbuddies, I can see that this is not an easy investigation.
Methinks there are many witnesses trying to stay away from your serious probing and searching.
Some superb potential mugshots there though
you seem to be spot on with some of the feathered variety.Keep it up, be ruthless THE HAWKS NEED YOU
Thank you, Meandering Mouse! We will try not to disappoint you. Typical SA style - The Hawks arrived on the scene only much later! WIll still report to you on their actions. Luckily we were there on time, taking pictures of the scene - undisturbed...
