A long drive with a great scare !!!!!!
Up early the morning with this beautiful view... sending us a wave goodbye from Pkop .
I stayed on the Tar road all the way to olifants were we had to take a detour on the gravel road towards Letaba
This is what we saw Exp for the ellies that almost thru my car and trailer over because of some IDIOTS with Landies mocking a big Herd right next to the road So no pictures as I was really trying to keep my composure and temper for the risk of my family safety .
Her is the Story I told PetraJ on her TR
I had a narrow escape two weeks ago in KNP on the H1-2 between Skuks and Tshokwane But no pictures
As I was moving from Pkop to Letaba I had a 6ft trailer that was realy packed to its limit . So I see two land cruisers next to the road and start slowing down as we get closer I realized it was a breading herd of Ellies all a round us .The guy in the landie in-front started pushing a ellie to move out of the road when the ellie decided he is not going to have any of this and started mock charging Now we all know reversing a trailer is not that easy As I was backing of and then only realized that I am now right in the path of some more ellies now this is when you start sweating and everyone in the car starts to get exited
The cruiser still trying to get pass the ellie in front then realized he needs to back up and that is when I showed him the brights of my car so he can realize we are STUCK there is a better word to describe this situation ....... He then moved to the right of the road where the ellie was now on the left I saw the gap and just put foot down to get out of the situation as I passed the big guy I just saw him miss my trailer in the rear view mirror sheeeewwwwweeee after that I stopped at Tshokwane and stayed there for about a Half hour just to get the nerves back and with our luck as we pull out of the picnic spot what
Road block another herd of ellies crossing the road but I sure kept my distance this time ....
This guy did not what to show us his face
Juvenile Hornbill with its mommy just love the sounds they make
Beautiful Starling just the correct light
This grounded Horn bill
Black Heron I think
This one the SO capture so nicely Mongoose
This close to the Mazithi dam Just classic Check the ladies ignoring the men
Get away this is my turf He chanced this guy for quite some time
As we came close to Ngotse I saw this big herd of ellies coming to have a drink Can you see all the little ones
And this is why GET A ROOM
This guy getting to work next to the road
What YOU looking at cant you see I can handle IT Grumpy guy checking us out
This guy lazing away in the winter sun
And the another highlight for us as we have only seen them ones before about 4 years ago in kruger this was about 5km before camp
And then it was in to the camp
At reception we waited quite a while seeing that it was late already and a lot of people were checking in.
As we all were standing around waiting to get our forms done A auntie and her daughter storms into the Reception Demanding they want to see the camp manager
And really not letting anyone have word screaming at the receptionist to get hold of him right away.
In comes this oomie all relaxed and asked the ladies whats wrong.................... And the aunty reply's Why aint the damn TV not working in the TV room
We want to watch the Rugby and the TV aint working REAL Now I am a big fan of Rugby but this was really the pits. I will not mention from where she was but they were playing against the Springboks that day and I dint even watch the game But hey you must get some fanatics
Ok so we set up camp till late that evening and had a good rest
