Just to keep everyone in the know. The mother leopard is Rooiputs, she seems to have taken over Maja's old territory....lets hope she takes over her attitude of showing the cubs off too :)

Hi there KG,

Sad days indeed for the staff of the KTP . . . with the loss of a great guy.

KG, I did forward to you a pic of a hare that was taken in the park in November. Maybe for you to upload it for viewers to see . . . and possibly give us some feedback as to their numbers in the Park. One would have thought that with all the jackal, raptors and bigger predators arround . . . . there would not be many of them arround.

Kindest and go well . . . we'll sit arround that fire on the ground soon . . . to talk for a long time into the chilly night air of winter.

Nossob : 6 days from 5th March 2015
Namibia : on a sheep-farm in Nambia for 2 nights (14kms out)
Mata Mata : back to Mata Mata for 4 days from 15th March 2015



. . . with the red sand in my shoes . . I'll always return
