@Elize

The other cams are currently out at the waterholes, I have retrieved them a week ago to clean them and put in new batteries. The cams stay normally for two weeks at a waterhole to try and get the maximum pictures.
The Nossob trail cam will be retrieved today by the 4x4 guide; as soon as I have it I will then proceed to upload the pics.

Regards

Where would the best place be to purchase a trophy cam? It does not have to be the Bushnell ones could be one of the mini versions that trigger to a max of 10 meters.

Morning All,

Thanks to Scouter to put up the notice that we were off-line, BUT we are back on again and I can get the pics posted.

Did I mention there were 23 000 pictures which needed to be scanned through :big_eyes:

So lets not waste any time, the following pics were from Samevloeiing:

During the last week the lions have made several kills (Eland) just behind Twee Rivieren camp, it was the perfect opportunity to try and place a trap cam at one of the kills and HOPE that the lions would leave the cam alone and allow us some insight while they were feeding. Before putting up the cam we had to wait until the lions left to set up the cam :whistle:

Here are some of the pics.

Some smaller scavengers...

Then the eland was pulled out of sight of the cam.

And that is it...Guess we all should go and do some work now :wall:

That is a huge task Kgalagadi Guru! Thanks a million for your hard work! And thank you for sharing these awesome pictures with us! I have enjoyed them immensely. I was wondering how much of that Eland one Lion can finish. It seems that there were enough left for the Jackals, etc. :thumbs_up:
