Hi Lion Queen,

Lovely sighting, amazing animals those jackals, hope to see them soon!
Is this a recent picture of the two rainwater drinking jackals? Or is the Kalahari "bone" dry?.... :?

Best regards,

Beautiful pictures of Charlie and the BBJs Lion Queen! :clap: :clap:

I wouldn't mind to see a grown-up Cape Foxie, maybe it was to hot and they stayed in the dens during the day, and we missed them at night?

eos5d, we have just returned from Kgalagadi on 17 February, and although there were a few drops of rain a few nights, it is not really wet at this stage. But it is beautiful, not bone dry with yellow all over.

Thanx Hilda for the feed-back on the Cape Fox den just south of the Urikaruus turn-off. We'll pass this spot a couple of times in th en next few weeks . . . and we just might have some good luck on our side.

Any other recent Cape Fox sighting woud also be appreciated for us to plan our day drives.
Twee Rivieren : 2 nights for starters !
Nossob : 11 days from 1st March 2016 ( camping at last again !)
Mata Mata : then 5 nights at Mata Mata

. . . with the red sand in my shoes . . I'll always return
