Augrabies 6/7.10.2012

And I leave Rivieren Twee :shock: ... 250 km straight road,
sad yes :( , but not too much, the adventure continues ..... :dance:

Arrival in Upington, discussion with the owner of the car rental company ... :wink:
eat with compatriots, where I really enjoyed myself, I go to bed relatively early, I have an appointment the next day at 9:30 :wink:
My journey continues and what a beautiful way ... with Caracal, :naughty: no,no, not a caracal :lol: (maybe a Caracal would be nice too) Caracal herself :gflower:
After stacking the firewood that was used to stall the fridge in the trunk of the car, into the car Caracal, we leave. A friend with us, I think it's good for the "mental health" of my friend ... if she can talk a little ... I'm not very talkative ... English is a handicap :? (and not the only one :lol: )
I follow conversations as well as possible, but from time to time, I disconnect ... and ... I escape out the window. Fascinating landscapes, the sun, the shadows play with fields, trees ... the characters often colorful and even some shops, are also colorful and funny ...
like this one all in pink :tongue:

Arrived at Augrabies the chalet is not ready, so we head to the falls.
Beautiful, everything is redone, everything that was damaged during the recent heavy rains is rehabilitated. It is very impressive and I wonder how it must be with much more "open water" :shock:

We put our stuff in the cottage No. 57, an employee of Sanpark just warn us that a Baboon is coming, it's nice, thank you (not to the Baboon :lol: ... to the emplyoee) it allows us to keep an eye on our business :thumbs_up:

There are plenty of Dassies it's fairly new to me, pretty little critters, more or less fat, maybe should be according to the occupants of cottages and not too fierce, and a beautiful array of birds, Pale-winged Starling, Cape Waigtail , Cape Bulbul, Kalahari Scrub-Robin, Prinia

(Rainbow Lizard) Broadley's Flat Lizard
Image

Cape Wagtail/Bergeronnette du Cap
Image

Image he must have a big family :whistle:

A light meal and we leave for the afternoon game :dance:
We go to Moon Rock, Ararat, Oranjekom, Echo Corner, where nobody reply us ( :lol: :lol: :lol: ...) and all the nooks and crannies ... seems there would be a Caracal and Leopard somewhere :hmz:

The first animal is a Baboon and a small one, fairly shy, what a chance, it will not bother us :whistle:

The "highlight" of this output was certainly 3 Black Eagles (Verreaux's Eagle) 2 adults and a youngster :dance:
and even the nest attached to the walls of rock :shock:

the young is at the bottom... in the middle of the picture, under its parents... flying :dance:

So beautiful landscapes :dance:

Oups ! I forgot, we can get out of the car ... sceneries are completely different from what I know, sort of plateau with lots of small hills with rocks, rocks and plenty of hiding places and indeed very difficult of observation :wink:

On the way back, we met again Giraffes, which now cope with themselves

We prepare the meal while the sky blushed. What a wonderful first day :clap:

The next day we decided to go to the other end of the park, take all possible paths and small roads :D
so we leave very early :whistle:
For over an hour, nothing, nothing to put under eyes, except for a Springbok with hairs a little longer than in the Kgalagadi :hmz:

Image

After passing under the highway, finally we find Red Hartebeest :dance:
