Charged by an ellie and it's not your fault? Eish! Pity that the ellie went for the wrong vehicle.

Great pics anyway Val.............look forward to more!

Wow Val! An angry Ellie! It could be the same one that didn't want to let us pass on Wednesday! :shock:

Great Lion sighting! And I just love the beautiful heart-shaped noses of the Waterbuck! :clap: :clap:

It was scorching hot on Friday, and then you had no power! But we had such a lovely meet with you, which made up for the heat! :thumbs_up:

Enjoy the rest of your time in Phala! :dance: :dance:

Hi Val,

We are at Skukuza and internet is working much better, so both Hilda and me can be on the forums today :D .

Thanks for a great meet and awesome chat at Letaba :k .

That lion was really lazy :hmz: .

Sad that you could not do the drive and had to turn back :( .

Looks like the same ellie we met on Wednesday on our way to Phala :hmz: .

Thanks again for a really enjoyable meet :gflower: . Also great to have met Crested Chick :D . A really great son to have :thumbs_up: .

Will be waiting for the next update :popcorn: .

Better to be taking a dip in the pool than your little car taking a swim in the dip!

Not a Dassie in sight Grant, in either of the two places we used to see them!! (Near Masorini, and Erfplaas)
Nor the Klippies that we also saw regularly in both places. :cry: :cry:

We will keep looking!! :thumbs_up:
