Totally agree with Shaky - great video. Wish I was there just to take a few photos - especially the take-off of the eagle!

Peculiar Moments, Kgalagadi

Sometimes you can see strange animal behaviour in nature. You can see some peculiar moments in this video that I made in Kgalagadi August 2011. :wink:

My peculiar Kgalagadi moment came an hour outside the park when I was reporting a collision at the Witdraai police station.

This elderly fellow was chatting to the cops (as appeared to be his daily entertainment) and we reported the prang.

He asked if we had come from Kgalagadi, and then introduced himself as Elias le Riche, a past warden of the park!
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

Once again, an excellent video! Well done, Nico. I do enjoy watching your videos and thinking back of my own experiences in the park. Can't wait for my next visit.

Keep it up.

These are the prime reasons why I go to Kgalagadi. Seeing lions or other great sightings is a bonus...crank up the sound and enjoy Kgalagadi moods in 1 min. 27 sec :wink:
