Ok - I haven't forgotten about this - I just had to get my photos onto my computer, figure out how to post them, etc.

From the above list we only saw the lions! But we saw 3 lots, so we'll donate R30 for that.

I want to add the Sharpe's Grysbok - I didn't get a photo, but did see one on the Mahonie loop - R100.

The alledgedly rare Saddle-billed Stork showed up every day for us - so for that we'll donate another R70 - R10 per individual. I say alledgedly - as like I said we saw them every day - and they were definitely all different individuals! So according to the advertising for the competition we saw about 7% of all known individuals in South Africa!!! :big_eyes:

So my R200 will be transferred shortly!

These were the first ones we saw - a 18km detour, as we hadn't seen lions in 5 days in the park - but we were well rewarded :D

This was the saddest one we saw!

And our last day farewell purry furry!

The B Squared - Bianca and Brian, and Kyle too!

Kruger trip with a 15 month old in tow BOOKED! :dance:
Camping: 24 - 30 Aug: Maroela
30 Aug - 5 Sep: Tsendze - our 1st time
5 Sep - 11 Sep: Balule - our fav
11 Sep - 12 Sep: Lower Sabie :D
