What a wonderful day with so many amazing sighting :clap: :clap: .

Only saw brown hyena once during our 3 day visit to KTP during March 2013 and very far from us.

Thanks for sharing :thumbs_up: .


We did not see many brownies either, Barry.

I would love to see one close up in broad daylight –on top of my wish list for 2014.

Hi gatita,

you simply must have had a stunning time with such an amount of different animals you saw although I must say that the lions were quite numerous :big_eyes: Especially the one at Grootkolk inspecting the camp :thumbs_up:

Brownie as well, spotted hyaenas, lovely cheetah pictures and so much more - Sigh :dance:

And ready for more :popcorn:

At Geinab some bokkies were looking for shade. Maybe 200 metres further my SO hit the brakes. Far away into the riverbed he had spotted Rosa (thank you for the id Lionspoon, AstroMatt and wanderw)
