Don't worry Gryskat - we are all in the same boat here - the more you read the Forum, the more you crave your KTP "fix" so you go, and when you come back you miss it so much you spend all your time on the Forum trying to fill the KTP-shaped hole in your heart :D Happens to most of us !!!!

The closest I will get to KTP is 120km............the farm where we go hunting in June on the Nam side is a mere 120km from Mata Mata..........but no space and time for a visit:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Hi there,

I do apologize for not posting when I said I would. Things have turned upside down a bit and on the hectic side. Been at Mata-Mata from 07h00 till 19h00 yesterday and this morning 08h30 till 17h15 . I do give you my word that I will post PLENTY pics during the weekend I just need to get my head straight.

Sorry :redface:

Awesome as usual Jannie - thanks so much for all the hard work and effort in lugging the termite mounds around, putting up the cameras, changing the cards, moving them AGAIN and then downloading them and trolling through literally thousands of photos to show us the best ones :k We really do appreciate it !!!
