A Martial Eagle, a Steenbok trying again to hide and OOPS, a Springbok that jumps, I have followed the movement, it is a cat jumping on a mouse or whatever ... an African Wild Cat on the lookout :hmz:

Even the bus behind to me could not find it! and I'm not strong to explain the right place, I usually take a pictures of the surroundings in order to point the location :lol:

And again Falcon, I'm in heaven, then 4 Lionesses to Kij Kij and Brown Hyena lurking in a bush beside waiting for it can reach the water point. But too many cars (5-6) stopped, carelessly and without stopping the engine and it run away :rtm:

15.3 and 16.3.2013 - cricket day, at the beach :lol:

7:00 on the ground, the ladies played early, to allow the sun to the gentlemen :wink:

We had to "climb" the stand of "Silent auction" with lots of very attractive objects, try to follow the matches. I finally understood a little more ... the two players with bats are on the same side (team) ... a big step in the future ... for me :hmz: :lol:

Night buses were chartered to go to the scene of gala. Magnificent gala, good food, a bit noisy with the orchestra in the ears and full of speech ... in English :whistle: and a beautiful sunset.

The next day (17/03/2013) my friends forsake me, early, one for Cape Town and the other for J'burg.

On the 16.3.2012, in the middle of the cricket matches, around noon, I realized to my amazement that the fridge/freezer not working anymore ...
I have not quite rolled and the battery is discharged. I am OBLIGED to go, make a drive, and left everyone on the beach ... cricket :redface:

I saw a Steenbok, 1 Lion à Kij Kij... again, not only a mirage :lol:
Back early, we have rendez-vous with the shuttle/bus to the gala

17.3.2012

Early, my roommates are parts, one very early to Cape Town, and the other a little later to J'burg. I know they have a good trip, it was fantastic to share the chalet with such nice friends :D

This is on this road I met a Legende... Lionspoon and SO (Spots) for the first time :dance:

I'm ready, I went towards the Auob riverbed and in the hills just after TR ... :hmz:
OOPS! OOPS! right place, right time, I faced a Caracal :dance: :dance: :dance:
and without delay, spin along... in the red dunes. Magical view :clap:

Part 3

18/21.3.2013
KTC – Honey Moon


18.3.2013

Once again, I put everything in the car, in a multitude of small trips and finally ready, I'll get my license.

Oops, a tire is flat ... Mr chief of police and Madam, give me a hand to inflate the tire, take me to the workshop repair and "in a blink of an eye" they fix it, they are artists, and I'm going again :wink:

A quick glance at Samevioloeiing as usual before I embark myself on the road of the dunes in the Auob riverbed

Again, a Cheetah faces me, I am alone, of course at this hour, they all run away at the opening of the gates ... :?

He climbs into the red dunes, on my left side, I bypasses the dunes, I do not see it back ... and because it is hidden between two small bushes, sitting ... looking around for one of these antelopes, it will have for dinner :hmz:
Not even have time to position myself, I was most ready to warn cars that might arise, and to cut off the road ... or worse, crush ... to see where almost everyone drives in this paradise :rtm:
