Question on the drought currently and past like the 60's, 80's and 91/92 Did the herbivore species die because of the lack of water or the lack of food due to the drought conditions as they would need both...?

Out at the gates at 5:30 and back at 17:58

I will definitely book here again.

Re: Bruce Bryden - A Game Ranger Remembers

Superb book.

I have two hard copies and a soft copy on my Ipad kindle app.

Bruce had the gift to immediately transfer me from anywhere in the world right there into the park with him.

Just the adventures he had with animals around the house was amazing.

Definitely worth every cent.

Re: Which animal eludes you most in KNP?

Every sighting is special...

But the top of my list of animals to find is the Sable and Eland.

Interesting that nobody mentioned a black backed jackal or side striped jackal...

Re: The Perfect Kruger Lens

I took my Sigma 150-600 Sport to Kruger in July and I absolutely loved it.

I enjoyed using this lens as it gives me so much range to work with.

Cant wait for the next trip late October.
