Ok, back from S.A. this morning and in work, no sleep, but the sacrifice I had to make to get the most out of my holiday.
Regrettably, honey badger didn't make an appearance, but thanks Chris for asking the guy to sort it out
One cheetah, but was still fantastic. Had an amazing trip and now I have over 70GB of photo's to go through. Looking forward to posting the report with some pics.
A couple of quick things though from the trip
A) SPEEDING - A very, very common occurance and the worst offenders - SANPARKS Staff.
B) People getting out of their cars. When I was at the cheetah kill sighting, there were two Germans leaning out of the windows, almost fully. At the same sighting a red citi golf pulled up next to me and the guy got out of his car, closed his door and stood in front of my car to try and take a picture of the cheetah. When I told him to get back into his car, lets just saw, he had a few 'choice' words for me.
The above are common concerns on the forum. A sanparks vehicle came at a speed which I estimate would've been around 70km per hour on one of the talamati dirt roads and almost came straight into us. He just laughed.
I think there is an education factor required from Kruger with regards to international tourists where english - oral or written - is not their strongest i.e. they may not understand the boards etc. I think they need to look at where their tourists are coming from and have a quick 'orientation' before they enter the park i.e. do's and donts.
Anyway, looking forward to get started on the report and sharing some of our experiences with you all.
