Afternoon All.

Well the last few months I have been busy to bring you guys more a virtual feel of the activities offered at Kgalagadi, although I would rather face two charging lions as to work with this technology....Eish. At least I did get lot of help from Nedret and other Head office staff to get me through it....THANKS GUYS.

Due to the fact that we dont have signal all over the park the second best thing was to take the Go-Pro cam onto activities and see what we could bring you guys, this is still in the baby shoe stage and there will be a lot of hick-ups but I think we will win.

I will try do post clips as much as possible, but please bear in mind that I need to do other work as well 8)

So this would be the first clip and I hope it works and you guys would enjoy.
