Why is this Karoo thread so quiet ?

I am on my way there in May 2014 on route to KNP and need some firing-up !

Please respond with some photies too !

On a previous visit we had a tortoice wanting to pass under the tow-hitch of our caravan in the camping area, lowering itself (as the old Citroen cars could do), and off he/she went !

Morning all
From time to time I will pop up in here to give you updates on what was seen on our activities, perhaps post a pic or 2.
Some of you might know me from Augrabies, like I said I'm not doiing guiding anymore but want to share some of the Karoo splendour.
Last night the guides have seen the following:
2 Aardwolf
2 Porcupines
Kudu's
Zebras(Burchell)
Gemsbok
Red Harebees and a few Hares.
