3. KTC 12/13/14.9
This time, it is time to go right into the park, I mean in an unfenced camp. Finally feel alone surrounded by all this wildlife. Arrival at KTC is exactly what I felt. First it was impossible to cook as there was back and forth to the water, ostrich, jackal, wild cat, go out into the kitchen, control the fire, take a picture or two (fortunately there are no baboons) but still a fence anti hyenas ... for the car ! This has been useful, they patrolled noisily all nights.
In the morning, I woke up with 7 °, and it was really hard to get out of bed. The next night I put my clothes into the bed .... It's the only morning I really felt cold.
For the first time I saw the Cape fox digging around in all directions, I am yet remained a long time, but I have not seen the babies mentioned Penny (I think). here
Then I left to cross the whole family ostrich who take time. Parents took their bath of sand and one small chicks tried to do the same thing, with varying degrees of success. here here here
Then I sat down to a brawl Tawny, they were three, the fight was hard, they even continued to fight in flight. here here here
Then I sat down to the Tawny's breakfest, a male mouse ! here here
And again Suricates, What a chance !
In the 14th water hole there were 3 young lions who terrorized sprinbok and oryx, but a rash Springbok who dared, after weighing the pros and cons, have a drink. here here
Returning Mata Mata, I checked the nest (TonyT.) above the route. It's still there, but it feel empty and I saw a Bateleur a little further in another tree, can be well also with a nest, I'm not sure here
Then I went to the hyena's den and I had the chance to see 3 babies and some adults. The place is well protected, no car can go very close and it very well here here
I then found on the road a Black Mamba, halved ... still moving ... vision of hell
I came across a police car 30 seconds before and under the tire tracks on the road ... they may well be the culprits!
I then saw a large herd of wildebeest with only 1 Cattled Egret here
and a lot of new birds for me.
Then I crossed what I believe a Mole Snake…… here
It is also the first time I've seen so many snakes.
Oups enough for this chapter.... it's very difficult to post...
