Thanks MN, Pumba, MM and C.O'Dee.
MN, yes Karoo is a very quiet and peaceful park.
I'm sure you are going to have a great time there in June.
Pumba, you are right, we travelled a lot in "the world in one country".
Finally it were 6300km.
MM, yes service and food in the restaurant were indeed very good.
We enjoyed our dinner and breakfast very much.
C.O'Dee, is this your first time visit to Karoo NP? I'm sure you will be impressed by the great landscape.
18.02.2008 Karoo National Park, late afternoon
We decided to do no more walks today and have a look at the game viewing area. Towards the Bukraal picnic site there were road works and only one way to drive, no loop any more.
Far away zebras walked up a hill and a chanting goshawk was watching the quiet scene. The birdlist we got at the reception says it is a Pale Chanting Goshawk.
A kori bustard walked in the dense grass. Ostrichs crossed the road right in front of our car and started running as they detected us.

It was now 38 degrees centigrade in the sun and we did the drive again an hour later.
