That S28 always denies me cheetah sightings :roll: Its time it showed me the reason for it's reputation :rtm:
I'll be happy with one massive hear of buffalo on a quiet road, the sound of a rhino munching the grass, and any cat! I also need to snap a nice hyena pic for my lass :D
But out of the cats, a close cheetah sighting would be my top :dance:

Lions at Bangu waterhole and Gudzani is my prediction for you 8) Then leopard on the Phabeni road :thumbs_up:

What I really cant wait for is the feeling of being in the bush that you get at Balule 8) Oh and top of my list is a Sable sighting on the Voortreker road

Tell me about it, as soon as we passed Tshokwane we could feel it was busy, the South was crazy!

I did manage to find my Lions but just not at Bangu, any luck with the Cheetah brothers

Morning Vee's

I hope every one is having a good hump day :mrgreen:

If you haven't seen the news, the 2014 cricket will be Skukuza. I know Skukuza will be more affordable and accessible for most of us Vees. It will take place during the Weekend of the 8th of March 2014. The Cricket is a really awesome event and definitely something we should be supporting :dance:
