"Classic Kalahari landscape" yes, indeed it is! Thanks a lot for sharing Goronta. Seeing giraffe in the Kalahari landscape is so special. I've seen many giraffe in parks like the Kruger NP but it was never as beautiful as in the more open spaces like the Kalahari, Augrabies, Mapungubweor Etosha. Maybe the red landscape of sand and rocks ads an extra dimension.

Best regards,


Rob
