We all enjoy the daily sightings (when the cats are not around) and thought as we already have topics for Lions, Hyenas, Jackals,small cats and foxes, a topic for all the other Kgalagadi residents will complete the sightings and Kgalagadi experience.

We always new we are in KTP when we spot our first Gemsbok on a dune.

and then our first Springbok.

The Springbok, the icon of the Kgalagadi for me. I love snapping them.

In this photo mom is encouraging little one to walk/run. Just a few hours old.

Pronking

Image

Thornbush snagged on the horns.

Pronk display. Unfortunately had to take this shot through the cars windshield.

Sentinel

During our April visit we parked in the middle of a herd of a couple of hundred springbok. A very satisfying experience. We must have sat there quietly for at least 20 minutes.
