I do not have a personal issue with you. I have issues with how SANParks are doing some things. You could have replied to me on the other topic but I accept your apology.

oooh. I have that exact same photo too :)
Stupid branches in the way all the time. (My pic is about the only one without branches)

You get the glory for spotting Ontlametse that morning.

Thanks for posting the pictures here jenand and GavinW, and well done to Debbie for the spot...I gather it was a tricky one ;) :thumbs_up:

Seems like sightings are picking up a bit after a dry spell during February.
Kabelo was spotted at Houmoed on the 18th March 2014 so it would appear that he is exploring the south a bit....maybe we might have a new resident male in the making? Time will tell :)

Not sure who this is, but saw him/her at the Nossob hide after 11:00pm. This was on January 4th this year. Was chased away by big Mr. Lion.

He/she suddenly appeared in the darkness like a ghost. The Lion was there earlier in the evening, but returned to chase him/her away.

Welcome to the forum and this thread Herkaun.
Lovely sighting at the hide and great photos :thumbs_up:
You saw the female called Haigamas. She hasn't been seen very often and is very distinctive as she has a lot of little almost cheetah like spots.

Would you mind sending me a full report through my website below.
Thanks :thumbs_up:
