Not to worry! :)
We'll send a heads up to the person sorting the payments and will ask that it comes to us.

Thank you so much for your contribution!



Thanks Jen B. I thought it might disappear and mites might think I did not keep my promise.

Hi Missing s.a.

Have received the request from Jen B. Donations through Givengain take AGES to reach the SANParks HR bank account but I will be on the lookout for your payment when it finally comes and I will ensure it goes to the right region and project.

Regards

JenB -

In a moment of weakness, I doubled my donation from R500 to R1000. Made through GivenGain, as instructed I included the notes VHR - normana53 - and "Mites go to Kruger to raise funds for our rhinos - The Greak KNP Brownie Hunt"

Now Spargs said that we had to find a badger in Maroela and by the kiekies you guys will see that we did spend time at the Maroela fences...



Wendy with her homebrewed MMC

cheets with the torch searching intently

And a pic of our 3 chairs camped out in front of the fence
Image

Now did we find a badger in Maroela camp? :hmz: Oops it didn't happen but we did find Badgers...

Satara camp @ 4 in the morning totally too asleep to have the right camera settings
Image

on our way to Tihongonyeni it was carrying a baby but it didn't get close enough for a proper pic
Image

and about 10km from LS on H4-2

So Spargs does it qualify?????

THis one goes out to Radman...
Did we see hyenas. Ya a lot!!!!!! But we decided that those that found us at the camps does not count so no kiekies were taken of them. :thumbs_up: We did have 4 hyena sightings during the whole trip, and it is very strange! But none were seen at Shing :hmz: I only saw at Maroela and LS. So here they are.

On our way to Orpen to book in.
Image

THe following morning me and Cheetah went for a drive and Wendy slept in and this was our first sighting of the day.

Image

We had our other sightings at LS. The one night after we had our Leppie with his kill in the tree we were on our way to camp and the verrrrrrry ugly mister were coming our way.

Image

And the next day when I had the sighting of the 2 leppies I was greeted by a few hyenas that wanted the imp all for themlselves. They were much better specimens to look at.

Image


So Radman there weren't so many hyena sightings, how kucky are you hey? But it was a teat seeing them especially after some tourists were moreeexcited than me to see them, they thought it were a brown hyena sighting and were jumping up and down as I saw the hyenas that I were looking for during the whole trip. It was really funny!!! :lol:

At least you found a few spotted ones Heksie! :lol: :lol:

I like the three chairs against the fence! What did you see all evening? :hmz:

Lovely HB! Pity it was too far for a nice picture of her carrying the baby! :thumbs_up:

Great Pics :dance:

I am really quite surprised you didnt see any Badgers at Maroela as when I was there in August last year they were running the show at night :hmz:

But never the Less I will Donate R250 because you did see some Badgers
