Hi all,

Last May we traveled to South-Africa for the ninth time. Time to add some new Sanparks to our memories!

So after 2 days of wine tasting in Stellenbosch :wink: we went for the 4 Frontierparks, Wilderness, Agulhas and the Cape (and ended up wine tasting in Stellenbosch :redface: ).

It was a wonderful trip and it shortened my wish list :dance: :
1. I saw more then the 2 ears I once saw in Kruger
2. I saw more then the red wings I once saw near Stormsriver
3. I saw the real one and not the look alike!

So which animals are off my wish list of 'please-I-want-to-see-the-whole-animal' animals? Any ideas?

It weren't the ones below, although I haven't often seen such tiny pronking springbokkies!

Thanks for joining :D !


I hope you will enjoy the trip as much as we did!

But before we arrive at our first San Park: Karoo National Park, we have to make a long, long flight.

In general I prefere a long haul flight during the night, but this time we had very clear skies and wow the Sahara Desert was amazing!

So please fasten your seatbelts!


These birds led the way:

We waved goodbye to the bulb fields in The Netherlands

And a few hours later we flew over The Sahara Desert. There you have really roads less traveled!

Ooh, this TR looks interesting. Love your baby bokkies, I've never seen such small bokkies before. Also love your pics from the air, especially the birds flying in skeins, and the Sahara.
