Stephan, Junita & Antonique in KNP- Oct '08- 75 Pics report

Unread post by Stephan & Junita » Tue Mar 31, 2009 10:17 am

Hi all,

This will be my third trip report and I decided to do things a little different. They say a picture is worth more than a 1000 words... so I decided to select 75 of our best pictures taken during our trip to do the "talking".

We visited the park in October 2008. We stayed at Tamboti for 4 wonderful nights (1 Oct - 4 Oct) and had some amazing sightings. Enjoy :)

Hi, we are back :D

Thanks CuriousCanadian, Batmad, Micetta, norms, Lorrainepring and Baffers for your responses. Yes, our baby is fine now, but she stayed sick for the duration of our trip. On day 4 we travelled a lot in the Orpen-Satara area and we had some wonderful sightings :clap:
