On the move to find the action

Unread postby Lionspoon » Tue Oct 04, 2011 4:49 pm

Never seen at Nossob!
Ultimately rare sighting guaranteed on 24th October 2011!
It'll only appear to make sure that another camera can be established at SANParks.
But we need your help to realize both!


The aim: A mobile webcam that can be hauled to different SANParks.

The method: Luring the rare sightings to Nossob to support the task.

The payment: Donations made via GivenGain to VHR Support.

The profit: Insights to less visited SANParks.

An ellie at Nossob? Or a dolphin jumping out of the waterhole? Time for some bets I think.... :lol:

Ok ... seeing musketeers want bikini sizes (in KNP forum, see topic companion wanted) I want to see a huge Yellow Ribbon somewhere on the Nossob cam on 24 October .. for this, I will pay R200 :dance:

{nearly asked for a yellow speedo, but can't see an ellie co-operating with trying that on :twisted: }

I think, I could fathom an ellie in yellow speedos. 8)

Anyway - I'll donate 10 Rand for each correct guess that was made before the 24th October 2011
in terms of what four-legged (!) critter (!) we'll get to see on that day. :cam:

*edit* Maybe I should clarify that I'm talking about the ultra-rare sighting that is expected on that day. Not the usual suspects. :lol:

A rare sighting at Nossob? :whistle:

A lion in purple robe with an crown on his head? :thumbs_up:

I’m willing to bid R200 for any rare sighting.

When will the sighting be, because the 24th is a Monday and a lot of people are at work :hmz:

I hope it will be during the evening then maybe I could spot it. :tongue:

Touché, vinkie... :| You'll need to sneak to the webcam then, as we agreed to get the critter to the cam somewhen between morning and noon. And it said, we had to wait for it as it might be delayed - like stuck in a wildebeest jam or something like that. :roll: It didn't want to do afternoon / evening either. Said it was family time. :roll:
