Explanation:
I am really enjoying doing a trip report on our visit to KNP and really the forum is a great place to spend time I might otherwise be watching the TV! Thanks for being here! :gflower:
My birthday is next week and probably my fondest memory and birthday gift that I cherish the most was when we lived with Mapungubwe as our back yard! We spent the day at Maloutswe hide. My birthday present was a breeding herd of elephants at the waterhole. It was magic. We camped for one night and listened to hyenas all night!
So I thought I would find some of my photos from the year that Mapungubwe was our sanctuary - 2007 - and share them! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Coming in with a rush! Thirsty!!

Wonderful photos, Jaytea, I look forward to more.

How special to spend a year with Mapungubwe as your back yard.

Love the ellies. Just so typical of feeling around with their trunks. I feel in my bones that a Mapungubwe visit is needed.
