Hi there

Lately many guests would complain about the waterholes not having water, as you can see in some of the clips that the culprits are the Eland which will come and drink at night and they empty the waterholes not giving the pumps enough time to refill the waterholes, so it is not that we do not maintain the waterholes it is just that the Eland is currently the problem.

Morning all,

Well after a long wait and very busy days I got the cam from Leeuwdrill. Here are some pictures. The cam at Houmoed is still out there and will be retrived in this week.

Enjoy.

Wow Jannie - some absolutely AWESOME shots there - love all the lions and the wildebeest and the tawny - just too many to pick favourites - but I think it has to be the one of Albert :thumbs_up: thanks SO much for this - you must have had your work cut out sorting through 1000's of photos for us :gflower:
