:big_eyes: :big_eyes: :big_eyes: Stunning photos Jannie taken by those cameras at Urikaruus! I wish I could sit next to that camera 24/7, but of course in 'midget' format so those long teethed guys would not be able to see me! Just about all the animals of KTP seem to come here! Thank you very much KG! FMJ

Thanks Jannie!! :dance: :dance: So happy you posted these from Urikaruus..... hope you don't mind if I hijack this thread a bit and post the pics of these sightings that I took from our balcony at No 2. The cheetah cubs kept us amused for quite some time while they inspected the Cameratrap :D The male and female lion were one of two couples that also entertained us for 2 full days. Getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom was quite an experience :shock: Every 15 mins our cabin vibrated from the groan and roars of the two couples, we thought they were trying to outdo one another!! :lol: Wonder if it made a difference to them that it was Valentines day ? :wink:
Ok, give me a few moments to resize and upload the pics :)
