Mfubu-melting in KNP-Nov 2010

Unread postby Mfubu » Thu Nov 04, 2010 7:32 pm

well lucky me to be back in KNP. tuesday spent the night at berg en dal and literally slept underneath the stars....absolutely awesome. woke up really early to go to guriyongo (excuse the spelling) and was very lucky to see 2 black rhino. got to mz and realised i was somewot hot and bothered but boy wot an amazing sunset. am back in knp today and at skukuza. sitting testing my mattress out making sure it was inflated enough..wot do i see out of tent window...a bushbaby doind a tightrope walker imitation across the fence. then sitting here in the dark right next to the fence i hear movement. i shime my torch and sure as bob the hyaenas have started their nightly circle of the camp. i cant wait to fall asleep to the sounds of the bush. all in all our sightings have been incredible. i have seen the babiest of elephants and some real small hyaena pups. i have been reminded of why i love it here. thank goodness for the pools because without them i do believe i wouldve melted by now.

I certainly do have pics... hehehehe my camera battery went flat I took so many. I just have to upload them onto pc, or can I do it from my phone. I have to share with everyone... I am still so excited by my lucky viewing.. 45 minutes with them all to myself. Will put pics up as soon as i have figured how to do that.

1km outside berg en dal. i swear i am so excited i still dont know wot to do with myself....who wants to count sheep when one can count wild dogs while falling asleep. they are just my favorite animal in the whole world and to see them so brilliantly twice in one day overwhelms me. we were literally surrounded by them and to hear their yips so close and so clearly.... WOW WOW WOW....im truly truly overwhelmed

the best thing about them is they never stay in one place, they are always moving so noone ever really knows where they live.... even if i got told i could see dogs at this distance from there, i still never saw them. so where i saw them noone else will see them at those coordinates....thats wot makes them so much more special....their sneakiness
