Hi there,

The Eland should stay down south for a while now as they have plenty of water here, they were seen on our sunset drive, walk this morning and full day drive.

I will do my best to post more cam trap pictures tomorrow, just got tied down a bit with something else.

KG

Morning all,

Just too keep you updated, the cams are all still being cleaned. We are just waiting for some batteries before they will be put out again. As soon as it happens I will let you know. In the meantime here are some pics which was taken recently.

There is still an Eland at the which the lions havent touched yet so I will try and put up a cam trap there today.

Unfortunately my SD card 'crashed' and i cant post the other trap cam pics.

I love this thread, KG!! :gflower:

Heading to KTF in less than 356 days (but who is counting?) and wish I could lie by the waterholes and capture those remarkable views :cam:

The lion and his kill were incredible, thanks so much!

HI KG and others,

I see you make mention of several Eland being killed by lions. What is going on here? Is the Eland population suffering at the moment as it did a few years back?

Cheers and thanx
