Hi!
We just came back from a wonderful trip to the Kgalagadi!
We camped at Polentswa for 4 days. The handsome old lion was no more.
An impressive young black mane Lion and 2 younger ones form a new group.
We heard but did not see a leopard at night.
At all the waterholes, (Polentswa, Kwang and Nossob and more) were at least 3 - 4 Lanner Falcons trying to catch Namaqua doves or Sandgrouse .
The treat of our Trip was to spot a barking gecko, who did not mind to be photographed !
The next 3 days we camped at Nossob.
(Kaapse reen) Misty rainy weather was a bonus.
We heard a male Lion close to camp and the next day found him at Marie se Draai with two females.
The last day we were at Nossob, just after it rained , I spotted a Violet Woodhoopoe from the hide :D
Good to be back, counting the months to our next trip!
:thumbs_up:
