Beautiful *sigh*... The heron is particularly stunning. :clap:

I think, we saw that bokkie inside the gates as well. :lol:
Probably much safer than the rest of the park. :whistle:


Thank you,Lionspoon.

that bokkie for sure knows how to escape the predators. I am surprised that there are not more animals in camp as the gate is open all day. :o

Nice start of the day gatita, I like your heron shot. :clap:
I'm always surprised to see herons in KTP as for me this bird is more often associated with water.
The first time I spotted one in KTP , I couldn't believe it :big_eyes:


Thank you, Goronta.

I agree about the heron. This trip we saw quite a few birds I would not have expected in KTP. :o

29.09.2013 continued

After breakfast we checked out. At reception we enquired about the cooler box we had left here last year. We had sent an e-mail asking about it before but only received a reply on september 30th (coincidence?). It turned out that the box had disappeared. We already had expected this and bought the new ones.

We bought some more bread at the shop and left for Urikaruus at 10:45 am.

We got a short glimpse of some meerkats

Image

Close to Auchterlonie we saw some lazy cheetahs on the other side of the riverbed who were spotted in the area the days before as well. Today we know it was Elena with her cubs.

Image

Image

Although one was still finishing breakfast

Image

they showed some interest in a passing springbok

At Auchterlonie a red-headed finch was quite busy decorating his new home

Image

Some general game was around as well

Image

Image

We were surprised how green parts of the riverbed were
