Some with accompanying idiots.

Thank You all for the replies, I read and appreciate each one. My apologies for the delay, I just had a really bad week. Without further delay ...

General Game ...

Image

Image

Image

1 of the big 5…

Image

Something smaller …

Image

A unicorn …

Image

The animal I saw most of during the trip …

Image

The view from Nwanetsi. I sat at the top lookout for more than an hour all alone having lunch, while the bottom was packed. Not a single person came upstairs to share the view…

Image

Image

Image

Image

And last but not at all least – Some feathered friends

Good day LVB,

I really enjoyed the TR so far, especially the undertakers (Marabu Storks).

Hi Guys,

thank you all for following. I am unable to post the last installment because my router at home decided it had enough, thus I can't upload any more photos. :wall: The best part is nobody in Nelspruit can supply me with a router :wall: :wall: Guess that is why it is called the slowveld :roll:

When I get back from my next trip hopefully I will be able to upload and post some pics of the cricket itself.

Eish Vlakvarkvrou - The arms can do with a bit of sun :redface: and What was that mood, so pensive :huh: :lol:
