Why all this irrelevant off topic natter here.

Show me a pic of a brownie on a normal tourist road please. :cam:

Because there's a 1 in 1000 chance that you're finally going to get your photographic proof of BHs in Kruger, BB; so until then, thought it best to simply carry on talking about it. Of course, if we get to see a BH at the place of the irrelevant natter, we might just be able to follow it into Kruger, onto a normal tourist road, and lower those chances to 1 in 999. :twisted: :whistle: :lol:

we're thinking of bringing our camera trap next visit to Kruger to see if we can spot anything interesting in camp at night. Probably no BH, but maybe intoxicated campers.

how do you find time for Kruger? Do you also juggle chainsaws?
