So whenever you are here for a short visit and visiting the falls you might see these lizards and if you are particular interested in them I'm sure you will find them.
Male and female.

I love maps...............and make a lot of notes on mine............but then I usually take my old map with when visiting parks like KTP and KNP.

New parks I print a copy before we leave.......so I would most likely give my laminated one back. I do know that I've on previous occasions taken my map at Augrabies and given it some-one else who was looking for a map. :thumbs_up:

Why not put up a notice to say that if you need/ want a map, ask for one at reception.

A lot of the other parks you get nothing more than your booking slip.........mammal and bird lists you need to ask for or in my case I print those from the website before hand.

I have a passion for books...........so would love if there was a book like the kruger map books that I could buy.

Good afternoon all
I've seen a Martial eagle about two days ago on the entrance road in the park sitting on a telephone pole.
Yesterday I was also lucky to see this Booted eagle with it's breakfast, some kind of bird specie.
