Sounds like a brilliant plan, KG. :clap: :clap: :clap: Keep us posted as I would certainly like to see how the plan comes together. Great thanks to the extremely generous - and nameless? - forumite responsible for this development. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Only a pleasure to post the pics, always nice to see what happens when we are asleep. It is always nice to see the variety of species at the waterholes


It indeed is Kgalagadi Guru! Thanks for all your hard work sorting and posting these pics for all of us to enjoy! It is really appreciated! I also love the Ostrich in the "pool"! :clap: :clap:

Afternoon,

It has come under the attention of Kgalagadi Management that guests uses 'Camera Traps' inside the park. Wilderness Camp attendants have been asked by guests to place the 'Cam Traps' at strategic places e.g. foot paths & waterholes.

Kindly take note that this willnot be allowed in the park.

The wilderness camp attendants will again be notified that this is not allowed.

If cam Traps wants to be used for research purposes, the necessary permission needs to be obtained.

Thanks so much for the co-operation.

The current camera traps being used in the KTP started off as to show guests what happens at the waterholes at night, the cam traps are now also being used in lion monitoring.

Regards

KG

Guru what happened after 30 December 2012. I have now worked through this whole thread from day one. It felt like a marathon (a very nice marathon) and then I come to the end and it's gone.... :cry:

Please tell me you just moved it. It's like reading a Who done it and finding that somebody removed the last chapter.

@NetEk,

Due some unforseen incidents regarding Cam traps and after many meetings we decided that the cam traps used by SANParks will still be used as part of the monitoring of lions for an upcoming research project.

The cams are currently put out at Urikaruus, Leeudrill and Montrose. I have brought the cams in for a decent cleaning before it could be placed out again. The coming weekend I will collect the SD cards and start downloading the pics.

Sorry for the long wait

Guru if you weren't 24 (little bite young for me) I would kiss you. I have become a junky the last 24 hours. You know what they say about drugs it only takes one try to get you hooked well the same goes for Camera traps a la Guru.
