June 23rd, Fifteenth day, Cornered . . ., Saturday – Part 2 A 4x4 coming from Lower Sabie stops and I’m asked for the reason for this road block some paces behind me and why I’m standing aside.

Hi blasian, even if this road the H3 is only called a good road I had also excellent sightings there. I remember my first pack Wild dogs that was remaining next to the car for quite a while some years ago close to Afsaal. And the Pangolin sighting at the last trip was also there as you can find at t...

It’s not so much but at least something: June 23rd, Fifteenth day, Cornered . . ., Saturday – Part 1 I wake up at 3 a.m. and delete pictures from the hard drive. Although I have a capacity of more than 130 GB with me I’m afraid it will be not enough and so I’m deleting pictures of low quality whenev...

Hello Ashley, so now it is a little bit time to come back to your questions and to go more in detail: I don’t want to change the subject of this forum but I got so many questions like yours via mails.

June 22cd, Fourteenth day, Another day in paradise, Friday - Part 1 A new morning again. I didn’t sleep so well. Most of the night I was dreaming of snakes and I couldn’t take pictures of them because my camera was not ready. What a horrible dream. Not because of the snakes – because of the not wor...

Then you know very well like it was at S100 and we were on the same place at the same time. I just hope you were not the nice one with the big argument with his wife from “June 14th, Sixth day, Really coming home - my Olifants, Thursday – Part 1” who let me park in front of his car and run into this...
