Beautiful ellie shot Jan. :clap: :clap:

I am afraid I am the last person that will have rain. Summer is our dry season, so not much around the Boland I am afraid, but according to some KZN mites, they have had some good rain over the last few days, so we will ask them to bring it. :wink:
The north of the park appears to have had good rain, but looking at the Satara webcam, it appears bone dry.
We had a meet with Timbits and Nighthawk2 today and they were in the park a few weeks ago and said that there are many dams that are dry, including Nsemani, which I have never seen bone dry.....maybe just a trickle in the middle, but not dry dry. :(

Yes time is ticking by for us all who are about to leave for the park. :dance:
