Hi gatita

I'm still with you for the journey.

Your little visitor looks just like our KTC visitor, I so wish I had taken my camera into the kitchen.

Love your Hoopoe, I managed one quick shot but it was blurred so didn't make the report.

Doesn't KTP give great eagle silhouettes at sunset!

Regards,

DASSIEDELIGHT

For sure I am also a great fan of your Urikaruus critter - What a cute picture, gatita :dance: :dance: :dance:

Love also the sandgrouse in flight, the jackal, the african hoopoe and the bateleur at sunset :thumbs_up:

Thank you, TT, Anne-Marie, MM, lion queen and Pumbaa. :gflower:

As you like the mouse that much, here is another pic for you - but I think it is actually a rat, still cute though

Beautiful hoopoe! 8)

That bateleur shot at Rooikop looks very familiar. :dance: So does the little inhabitant at Uri. :lol:

Thank you, Lionspoon. :gflower:

that tree seems to be the favourite place of the bateleur to watch the sunset.

Thank you,Jan and Philip. :gflower:

Thank you, DD. :gflower:

I have quite a few blurred hoopoe shots as well. They are moving so fast. This one was the first ever that was willing to pose a bit.

As Marie se draai was a big disappointment we decided to go to Kwang on the morning drive and try to find the leopard that likes to feed on jackals. Outside of Nossob we found a couple of cars parked at the roadside and could not see anything. One of the passengers told us that there were cheetahs on the other side of the riverbed. They were far away though and on the run. Then the lady saw our YR and asked if I was gatita. We had met our first mite but I was obviously still a little bit sleepy and could not believe who it was.

At Cubitje Quap we met her again and she told us that she was on her way to Grootkolk. That availability had come up a couple of weeks before and she booked it. Now we knew who bet us to this. I had made a mistake and sent an e-mail to reservations to book two more nights instead of booking online. As it took them 4 days to reply, it was already booked in the meantime. We know by whom now.

There was another big surprise awaiting us at Kwang. The parking lot was occupied
