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.
