In exactly one month's time, we will enter KNP via the Phabeni gate and drive to Satara, where we will spend the next four weeks. Excitement is at the order of the day, as I remember too clearly last year December when we were in Punda Maria for 4 weeks, and the great sightings we had.
We will only be able to drive early morning and some late afternoons as from 08h00 to 16h00 I will be working in the camp, but hey, it is still 3.5 hours driving every day. Not to mention the night sounds, the fire at night and the old and new friends that we are going to see during this month.

Will try to do a day to day posting, depending on the signal and time available.

So, to start with, to get the time by, let me post some pics that was not posted yet in any of my TRs.
