Hi you,

we are back - unfortunately :? from another incredible trip to Kruger and besides the fact that one of our camera broke whilst there :cry: and the missing cheetah and the no owl sightings the rest was Paradise :dance: :dance:

Never saw Satara so wet during that trip and not so dusty - Gladly the rain showers took never long and the only fact that it rained in the morning heavily were the huge puddles in the camp in the afternoon sun - The rivers around Satara were full as never before N'wanetzi, Gudzani and Timbavati were looking lovely such full although the grass in return was nearly elephant high :big_eyes: - Needless to say that the sightings around Satara were great although the South itself amazed us nearly daily sightingswise. Unbelievable but true got to see three new never seen mammals although only one could be captured on picture :thumbs_up:

The North was far more quiet but birdingwise simply a must and finally could capture some or better to say nearly all most wanted and never captured birdies not only once :dance: :dance:

I will not reveal too much in advance so simply keep the :popcorn: not that far away :thumbs_up:
