Looking back from page 1 of this threat, it is just amazing the number of magnificent sightings that were posted, let alone the quality of the photos :cam: . Look at page 2 and 3 and so one can go on and on - always something refreshing. Well done, Jan - you have started something great. :thumbs_up: and to everyone that had shared their experience. :clap:

This is really inspirational and you just cannot help it to want pack up to visit Lake Panic. Or... :hmz: when doing your planning for next Kruger trip, it is as if there is a tussle how much time you want to spend at Lake Panic and how much time in the rest of Kruger....
