There are very few mites around to day. They have been celebrating the Bulls (rugby) the whole night :roll:

There is a frog or toad in the Kalahari that sleeps a lot; do not remember the name though.

Yes indeed, mole rats! I hope everybody reads the article you referenced, as they are really pretty interesting animals.

(I found it by reading up on them after Dreamer and Caracal's trip report wherein they saw one, and as I knew nothing about this animal, so I started digging, so to speak...)

Next question, please....

Opening the border crossing at Mata Mata has opened more than just
access between South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.
This gateway has started talk about creating a corridor linking this Park with
several other parks, can you name the other parks in question?

|Ai-|Ais/Richtersveld and Augrabies? And in greater thinking even Namib-Nakluft as well as Central Kalahari? :hmz:

Close enough Lionspoon, i see you are on a roll, well done. :clap: :clap: :thumbs_up:

The link is Augrabies National Park, due south. And from there, the Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier Conservation Area in the west. Just north of that is Namibia's 26 000 square kilometre Sperrgebiet National Park. That in turn abuts the Namib Naukluft National Park, one of the largest conservation areas in the world. Plans are afoot to link all.

I have to admit that I never heard of the Sperrgebiet National Park. Funny name for a park anyway. I associate it with something military. :hmz:

Okay, so I was right about the Namib-Naukluft, just for a different reason. :wink:

You guys rock!!

Here is a question from me.

If you were a cheetah in the Kgalagadi, and wished to rest in a shady spot for the day, why would a Shepard's Tree be a good choice?
