@HappyHippo,

Glad to hear you have had a great time, it is a pity that not so many people would like to go on walks they dont know what they miss and the experience is so much better on foot than in a vehicle (lions do NOT just want to eat you). If I could have it my way I would have done walks every morning/Afrternoon.
Pity we didnt see the lions, that would have made it so much better.

Hope to see you soon again.

Twee Rivieren, Mata-Mata and Nossob offers walks, every now and then a problem comes in when a guide is on leave (remember we need to armed guides to walk). the best would be to let me know when you would like to walk so a can make arrangements from here.

I will be here in Febr. Why not go and walk at all three camps, the vegetation differs and also the animal biodiversity. Not 1 walk is the same as the previous. I havent walked for a while up at KTC would love to go and do a walk there again.

Just maybe we could find Dreamers lion again

@Dreamer,

That is our Boy. He was such a relaxed male. We surely need to follow up on that walk.

Sightings like those that makes memories
