...after a long, rewarding day travelling the park...returning to camp to enjoy the sunset (weaver nests hanging from the baobab in Mopani camp)....

...and then to settle down for the evening with the glorious smell of mopani wood burning and listening to the scops owls calling to announce the warm african night ....*dreaming of africa* :thumbs_up:

HansJuergen - perhaps a view like this could further infect you ?
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Granjan that photo of the golden afternoon at Kanniedood explains it in a perfect way why some of us just have to go back again and again :thumbs_up: All the other photo's are equally :thumbs_up:
