Hi Carol
Nice to have you on board!
I will now make a new posting to this TR. Let me tell you I am also writing a TR for my KTP trip last June: Kgalagadi: the big and the small.

Cheers
Charbel

Here are the last sightings in Roodewal Road before reaching the Ratelpan Bird Hide, which would give us one of the most, if not the most incredible experience in the whole trip.

We found a nice Tree Squirrel (Paraxerus Cepapi), showed in the next two pics.

Image

Image

Another nice finding were these two White-Backed Vultures taking care of their chicks in the nests.

Image

Image

Here is a closer view of one of Vultures.

Image

Finally, some caring for the chicks, probably giving food to them.

Image

Image

I hope you all enjoy!

All the best
Charbel
