Hi Pumbaa and many thanks for your kind remarks,there is much more to follow.
@ gatita,they only allow quality to stay in 9c :lol: :lol: .
Time for DD and I to turn in, 4.30am tomorrow will arrive to quickly for me.Being a truck driver can be bad for your sleep pattern,but at least it pays for me to return to wonderful SA.

More TR tomorrow.

PF and DD.

Thanks PF. :gflower: Wish that I knew something about moths but I don't :redface: However, the first photo is a Bibron's gecko and I think that the large critter in the last photo is another ant lion -- I've read that an identifying feature is the 'knobs' on the antennae :wink:

Thanks again for the wildcat locations, it was great meeting you both! Lovely to see the cobra moving, it was just a loop hanging there every time we drove by, but we didn't spend a lot of time waiting. Great pictures so far!

Look at that impossibly blue sky 8) No pollution what so ever.

What lovely pictures. It is not often that I see Kudu posted on KTP trip reports. Lovely to see so many together.

More, please.

Hi SurfCindy,glad you're still on board.
DD and I are big birders so our feathered friends will always be part of TR's.

Take care wherever you are.

PF & DD.
