Leeukos, what a fabulous TR.
I stumbled across it yesterday and I traversed from the first page to here.

Gripping TRs with delicious pictures.

Got to just love the "Did You Know?" titbits at the bottom of your posts.
Very educational and very welcome.

Hi All (MM, Trrp-trrrrrrrr, Stampajane, hilda, Pumbaa, Mandinga, Toddelelfe, barryels, isinkwe)

Thank you for all the nice comments and feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the experience Patatjie and I had at Jock. My apology for taking so long to post the rest of the photos and I do hope you enjoy the rest of the "Walking with Jock" travel tale.

So not to waste any time, here are some more of the photos I took of the Painted Dogs.
