20.3.2013

Tonight I am invited to eat. Martie, the newlyweds and "Click Click" prepared a braai and a salad with avocado. Oh! it was succulent. Another big thank you, it reminded me of good memories, Kruger, the caravan, oven made of cardboard and aluminum foil and the wonderful roast for this year when I was for three months in the parks, it was a true "geuleton!"

one of the Gertie's Jackals... still not the Cheetahs :cry:

Image and run away :?

at Graig Lockardt, the local Lanner Falcon was really busy....
what a magnificent predador

Image

Since I don't need to make a fire, I do an "evening drive" not much to put in the mouths, except dust, yet something draws our attention, a Jackal and an AWC face themselves, will they fight :hmz:
No! the cat retreats, climbs a tree and the Jackal will sniff and mark under the tree.

Image

à suivre...

21.3.2013

I'm not in a hurry, the last full day at KTC
I still hope to meet Gertie :wink:

In the riverbed I found a Slender Mongoose, who immediately fled to hide in a thicket, to observe me :lol:
And again a cat, lying on the ground
The PCG is still there, and seems to be a little better :dance:

At Dalkeith, a Secretary Bird quenches its thirst ... without leaking. They are very shy and we need to come timidly a little bit closer :wink:

A battalion of wildebeest arrive in front of me again and always in search of water, it's still dry! It is impressive the dust they raise
