Stunning pictures Lion Queen, Jan, Goronta!!
Esp. the misty ones we never vistited the KTP in wintertime and never saw mist in the fields.

These "guys" are waiting for the (sand) storm, it was on our first day in the KTP, late afternoon. Back in the TR camp we had to secure our tent with some extra lines luckely the tent survived :D otherwise we had to return to Upington for a new one :redface:
I will have to search the memorycard of another camera, somewhere there are some pictures of the sand storm itself.
