[quote="jb72"]Just because a waterhole is dry, it does not mean you should just race past./quote]

this is so true.

Thank you once again Jan van Wyk and lion queen for your really stunning photos. I can only wish to see and photograph an adorable lion family like the one you shared with us!
….and that lion that saw herself in the water reflection tells a whole story by itself! Remarkable!!

We stopped at the Auchterlonie picnic place and were on our way to the loo when a friendly visitor warned not to follow the footpath because of this rather large puffadder curled up and camoflaged right in the middle of this bush!

Not a very exciting photo, but I can asure you that when we saw these 3 lions (all in all 10 of them) at Craigh Lockhart waterhole in April 2012, we were VERY excited. Unfortunately this is the only photo of them, as some of you may recall, my PC crashed with ALL my April 2012 photos (and lots other) just before downloading them.
