Seeing all those beautiful lion pictures we can't wait to be back in the Kgalagadi!
4 weeks to go (what a relief will that be, leaving the boring windy and wet weather in Holland behind us 8) )
We hope to see the Kgalagadi still a bit green.

Thanks for sharing your "Hide Experience" shots Kyknetta. Puts us right in the Hide with you. :clap:

Those B & W shots eos5d and PRWIN have a fantastic natural appeal. Thanks too for sharing :clap:
