As I am new to this forum I thought I would post some pics from my 2007 trip to Letaba and Shingwedzi.

This Elephant is majestic

Bird feeding the young in Shingwedzi camping area

I took this photo of a insect that was on the wall of the Ablution block at Shingwedzi

This was close to the Kannidood Hide of a Hippo

Random pics

This bird had a good look at itself in the mirror of my car

Can anyone tell me what the name of this dam is and on what road it is, I can't seem to remember

The great Boabab

BushBaby_Shing, Firstly a very warm welcome to the Forum. :D

The Ellie pic is beautiful :clap:

Critters make my jumpy :roll: , but you captured this one so well, you had some great sightings all round :dance:

Unfortunately I am not able to ID the dam for you :( but am sure one of the Mites will gladly assist you.

Thank you for sharing :thumbs_up:

The dam looks to me like the Engelhard Dam near Letaba.

It definitely looks like the Engelhard Dam on the S62, near Letaba as Elsa has said Bushbaby_Shing!

Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures with us! :clap: :clap:
