The guineafowl pics which were posted shortly before 11 am Saturday at Orpen are helmeted guineafowl. They are common throughout the park. Crested guineafowl have a fluffy feathered 'hat' and are usually seen only in the far north of Kruger. I have still to see them myself. :D

I've also seen heaps of helmeted guinea fowl all over Kruger (& elsewhere). In the photo I thought that some of the taller birds might have been helmeted, but I guess they don't mix. I took photo's of helmeted when we were in Hhuhluwe game reserve - they're an absolutely gorgeous bird. Only 3 months til we're in Kruger. :)

I've loved watching that little plant grow in front of the webcam at Addo!

Hey Mel,

I saw this as well last night... just too busy working to have time to post :roll:
I think whatever the 'meat' is was brought in by a hyena earlier as you see here:

Happy camming :thumbs_up:

Good morning.
On the evening of 7 July there was a big play-off at Satara between hyenas and a big male lion next to the fence in front of the guest house and the HR camping grounds at about 21h30. From about 19h00 we could hear the lions all around the camp. We watched how first the hyenas start fighting with an intruder (unknown hyena) and then the male lion charged in as well. At one point they ran to the webcam side. I was wondering if there was any footage of this on the webcams? I cannot find that days pics. Can anybody assist?

MATTHYS

Maybe SANParks could check the recordings of the Satara webcam? :hmz:

Like they said on the webcam section of the forum they are saving video and pictures too...so maybe we are lucky and they could post video of the moment that they came into the view of the webcam :dance:
