I stop Kamqua as usual went around the car ... tires, fridge and presto ... the big loop.
Oops, there are huge consequences of the fire of last September :?

At the beginning of this road, a very large herd of Wildebeest is en route to Kamqua waterhole

Wattled Starling/Etourneau caronculé

Image

Image and again :shock:


Arrived at Nossob, one attributed to me the room No 3, ... without windows, but with a fan which circulates the 30 ° which is already in the house :whistle:

Impossible to leave open at night, there is no mosquito net and it's already filled with mosquitoes. It is also the only place where I found bugs! And I will have to spend 2 nights :doh:

Fortunately there is the hide, and this evening a brown hyena makes an appearance, immediately followed by an incredible number of people, each one more noisy than the other :rtm:

The next day I decided to leave very early, I'd like to go to Union End, put a word in the book. So "dodo" early. Needless to say the night was a nightmare, between the heat and the mosquitoes :cry:

23.3.2013


One of my best days in the park :dance: :dance: :dance:
Union End and back ... almost ... I went till Kannaguass :whistle:

Again, raptors. And in the middle of the road, a couple of Lion ... who does not want to leave me and even do their little "work" in the right rear wheel of my car. Video evidenced... by the cries ... I have not dared to put the head out to see what I was filming! And it is none other than "Bad mouth" or "broken jaw" like, I like to say :dance: :dance: :dance: long time without any news

Image keeps an eye on me

Image

Image we call that : HLM
habitat low rented :lol:

At Bedinkt a brown hyena, well camouflaged, drinks and a Jackal quietly waiting his turn :dance:
Finally she goes and makes a great detour to avoid a coming Oryx

Image 8)

Image was so good

Image even the Squirrels shows again their little face :wink:

A little later, two small Warthogs, a little thin :?

I went up to Kannaguass, Union End was too far, I stopped so often, not enough time to do another 60 km :doh:
And the decision was correct :dance:

One: I met Lionspoon that going to Gharagab,
two: one of the highlight of the day: Lijersdraai :whistle:
three : the second highlight

Lijersdraai

Image

Image the poor Hyena has a drink
and return with a lot of pain, under the tree :?

Image it seems something is planted in its paw :shock:

Image better here

A Kori Bustard caught my eye behind, lurking in the bushes, something black, long black body, moves slightly, BINGO :dance: :dance: :dance:
