To all who have been so kind to take time off to 'scan' my TR and leave some comments, I just want to say thank you very much! I have been away for some time and only now had some time to post some more much overdue photos and comments on our latest trip! Special thanks to Caracal; Tobieo; Son godin; Micetta; wanderw; p@m; Elsa; mybs; Pumbaa; Suej; katydownunder; Bushbuddies
and all the other wonderful Forumites that I might have missed!
Now for some more postings!
On our way up north on the Nossob the grass was so very long that we could hardly see over it into the riverbed! This is maybe one of the reasons why our predator sightings were very poor on this (short) trip!
Then far beyond Cubitje Quap we saw these two hyenas on the prowl in the long grass. At least some excitement!
Wish we could see what they were up to?
Some ostriches (I think they have little enemies in KTP) and their numbers on the increase!
Has anyone ever noticed the white PT shorts that the Hartebeest are wearing?
…..and the proud and beautiful symbol of KTP!
….and this time around – lots of them!
At this waterhole (Polentswa) we counted 38 Gemsbuck and one ostrich who thought he was a Gemsbuck.
We had lunch in the form of an open air stirfry at the Lijersdraai picnic spot and then turned back! We started too late to make it to Unions End! On the way back to Cubitje Quap I caught this Bateleur just as it was about to take off!
The next morning we left Nossob and I took a few pictures to remind me of this nice camp later!
I must say that we had wonderful weather, but fairly cold at night! Ready to leave for Mata Mata!
Decisions! Left or right? What the heck, with time on our side, one last detour around Marie se Draai!
At Marie’s we came across this very interesting lion’s spoor continuing for a good few hundred meters! We think that she had a broken leg and was pulling it along! What do you think?
At Kasper’s Draai we saw these finches! ID please!
The Dikbaardskolk Picnic Site and turn off to the top dune road, showed no sighn of the Male Lion of December that gave us such a fright!
…..and some more uploads a little later!
