:) VVV and Elsa :whistle:
Awesome photo's :thumbs_up:

We were there April/May, and the Ellies still swam and played in K/fotein dam :)

Elsa, the water level was slightly lower than your lovely pics :clap:

:cry: :( VVV, it is unreal what the dam looks like now :redface: Well it is the rain that must fall before it "bloom'' again :cry: :( Very nice photos :thumbs_up:

Rufie :clap: :clap: Anything is possible in Mother Nature :wink:

Hallo there!

Is there a lot of animals at the dam and have any carnivores been seen there recently?


Saw a most magnificent golden maned lion and his collared lady there yesterday , feeding off a dead elephant that had been put down by park rangers due to it's left front foot almost torn off by a poachers snare :evil:

Are crocs often seen here? When it dries out so much I wonder how they cope?

@Okie Amazing shot of the male lion!
