The pictures of the leopard are beautiful: it was like he was posing.

I hope that you and all the team have a great time in the Cape. What an exciting privilege to share people's first visit to the sea.

Ok....most of the other work is done so now I can post again some of the Trap cam pics. The following pics were taken from a cam which was put up at Witgat (One of the camps on the Nossob 4x4 eco trail), some guests were lucky enought to experience the lions in camp and I always wanted to know what happens at the waterhole at night.....and now we know.

Secretary bird with its prey it just caught.

Very nice Lappet-Faced Vulture - which i didnt expect.

Nice shots from the Witgat cam. Thought that waterhole looks very familiar. :thumbs_up:

Wonder why the hyaenas and lions did not visit when we were there? :tongue:
