At the road from Bitterpan we were reacquainted with the pair of cheetahs. Closer this time

When they moved off they looked as though they were swimming, tops of heads and ears just visible.
Shows how long the grass can grow in the river bed.....
probably a scarce sighting ...

Yours truly, contemplating the shaving of the holiday beard, and life in the fast lane many, many miles away...

As we left the picnic spot, a vehicle coming down the road flashing lights..... ribbons flapping...recognised the vehicle as being anne catherine.

She just had to share the amazing sighting that had just happened. Watching 5 BEFs and an eagle flew in and took one... :( :(


And where we started, back at Samevloeing wh, but water had dried up.....

Yes same timing but very different trip from last year.....and thats why we will be back!!!!

Thank you Everybody for reading the TR, makes it worth it, thanks for comments and compliments, helps turn pages.... :gflower: :gflower: :gflower:

Because the quality of pics are not the greatest, I go for quantity...and resigned my self to not going for a white/grey lens...would love one ...but I am still an amateur and no plans to go pro....(yet)



Now I can relax and enjoy all the other TRs..... :D :D :D
