I was always reluctant to write a trip report, but after I spoke with GavinW I decided to post
Fourth time ”lucky” in Kgalagadi - May 2012.

I have now decided to post a short photo report on our 2011 visit to Kgalagadi. Some of the 2011 photos were posted in my 2012 report and I will only refer to them in this report.
