One of our latest trip to the KTP, Koringvoël ( White-browed Sparrow-weaver) with prey (does anyone knows what kind of insect this is?)
Picture made on the 5th of March 2014. On the TR campsite, sitting above our camping spot.

Hi Lion Queen,

Much fun indeed!! Lovely picture of the Yellow Mongoose, they are so much fun to watch. Last time in Nossob we saw one coming home from a hunt (or what it looks like....) It was running back to the den and we were wondering what the catch of the day was.... coming closer and closer we discovered it was a very easy catch.... a piece of braai worst :naughty: :twisted:
(picture will follow)

Another one from our first day at TR (we had hardly time to put up our tent so many "visitors" were passing by for posing :) )

Its a long time ago that this story happened, we all know the sad ending of it, today I would like to share some of my pictures which have been taken one day after the Kamqua visit of that lioness...

When we got up the next morning in Urikaruus we found her under one of the units and spent about 5 hours with her
