Stunning Hyena sightings with pictures to match Jan, Lion Queen and CliveK! :clap: :clap:

One can expect a population explosion in Upington one of these days, because all of us want to move to Upington to visit Kgalagadi more often! :wink:

Good day Rob,
I went to the Kalahari for the first time last year. We stayed in the park for 9 days. It was end of October/ beginning of November. It was hot and dry but I immediately fell in love with this spectacular place. Long story short, We went back in March of this year. It was so lush and green and totally the opposite of what we have experience last year October. I think I might be addicted to the Kgalagadi and its beautiful animals. :lol: :lol:
Regards
Stephan

We were at a lion sighting when we saw the lions looking at something to our backs, when we had a look, this Brownie was hurrying along the ridge to get out of the lions sight!!

Late afternoon staying at Kieliekrankie........ :dance: :dance:
