I have only ever seen one at Balule, and it was a very fleeting moment.

This is just a bit of fun. It is a picture taken of the first ever international meet at Berg n Dal. I suppose where I would like to be is around yellow ribbons. Always a good sighting.

Anywhere in Kruger where it is quiet and no traffic jams.

On my last trip to Kruger, I left my camera at home. :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: I had such a sick, sick feeling when I realised that my first trip ever to Tzende would be cameraless. :(

I did what I could with my cell phone. It is not quite the same. :wink:

Today I would like to be in Tzendze, making up for the lost possibilities.

Our tent at Tzendze. MM and daughter Explorer.

How awful to have no high-definition recording device, MM. :shock: I've done that once before too - actually did not bring the camera charger with - so had to switch on only for the best sightings and bizarrely hope that we didn't see too many life-remembering events. :? However, like your effort above; Tzende is indeed magic. :dance:

:) MM

I would not mind waking up in a Safari tent in Punda Maria right now - no I am an early riser I would have been awake long ago and already back from a slow drive on the Mahonie Loop with a flask of coffee.

Tent Dweller you are alomost in Kruger :D :cam: :cam: 8)
