FANTASTIC lion queen and well spotted to see a genet in a tree! Thank you for posting these great photos of that kill so close to the TR gate! Oh and that Brownie also having a go at the carcass!

Arriving at Kamqua in December 2010 after we came over the top dune road from Nossob, we found six lions at the waterhole.

Surely we have not covered ALL the toilet lions, not to mention the ones at the picnic spots yet! Please find those 'special' photos from your 'archives' and post it here!

This is my signature photo taken in June 2008 at Samevloeiing waterhole near Twee Rivieren in broad daylight. We have visited the Kgalagadi 5 times before and were fortunate enough to see leopards four times.

According to the experts this is leopard Kruiper, one of Maja's second set of twins!

Thank you all (and for the promises of more) and especially myles for your great photos! You were very lucky at Mata Mata! That leopard night photo at Urikaruus is just stunning! It seems that Urikaruus is a very special place!!!

After reading several KTP trip reports, I have come to the same conclusion Fotomaljohan! I think we will definitely include Urikaruus for a night or two in our next booking for 2014! :dance: :dance:

STUNNING pictures Myles! Thanks so much for sharing! :clap: :clap:
