You are welcome :gflower: - your photos are really lovely so don't apologies for the quality - much better than some I've seen !!

Nope, unfortunately not - but we have seen lots of photos and that is convincing us its a very magical place to spend some time - the added bonus is of course seeing lions like yours - you must have been thrilled - I would have :wink: Its definately on our next "to do" list for KTP !

WOW BG - you really are one brave :littleangel: - I don't know if I could do that - alone in a ground tent with all those lions around :big_eyes:

I can see from your posts though that you have a passion for nature and especially the Kgalagadi - it IS an incredible place isn't it ? My hubby and I went back there in Oct last year after a long time away and I am TOTALLY addicted to it - took my son and daughter in Jan before they went back to varsity, then my daughter and I went in her April vac, then hubby, me and daughter went in June and we are all coming back in Nov to do the Nossob 4x4 Eco trail - can't wait !!

Hopefully I'll bump into you and your family sometime in the park - would be nice to put a face to the name and say hi :D Keep those stunning photos coming .....

Hey scouter...
Thanks im just glad my parents allowed me!! :dance:
but is was really cool...the one night the lions walked about 20m away from my tent and roared crazy even a jackal had a BIG fright :lol: But then i was lying there in my tent and waiting to hear the lion walking closer but he walked the other way!!!! :cry:

GavinW
You cant have doubts about going to rooiputs it is sooooo amazing......you have to experience it!!but the lions arent always there they come and go,but we where lucky!!! but im sure you will enjoy it ALOT...when are you going next year???
