Look at that pile of cars! :shock:

Yes - lion generally attract a crowd in Addo, and this is the main north/south route through the southern section of the park. Anyway, these boys were enjoying the attention and as I mentioned, if any cars came close enough to them, they would stand up and give the back of the car a good whack with their paws as it went by! Do you think a lion scratch on a car increases its value? :hmz:

Lionspoon - 100 Rand for a bushpig sighting :(
Lionspoon - 100 Rand for a caracal sighting :thumbs_up:
Lionspoon - 100 Rand for a Bennett :(

That is 900 Rand in donations. :dance:

The lion sighting is without any doubt. That is 200 Rand. :dance:

The eland sighting is blurred, but I'll accept it. That is another 100 Rand. :dance:

The caracal sighting is another blurred and I would like to leave it up to, you, Duke and WFG who
pledged for it whether you acknowledge it as a fulfilled challenge or not.
I'll accept it and PJL will have to as he convinced me, but please don't feel pressurised. :twisted: But that is another 300 Rand. :dance:



Therefore we stand at :dance: 1500 Rand :dance: at the moment raised with the Addo Mobile Webcam event!



I can't thank you all enough for participating and donating, but big hugs to each and every one who took part in this!

My special thanks go to :clap: PJL :clap: , of course, as without him we wouldn't have had the pleasure of spending two and a half virtual days in Addo AND raise more funds for the mobile webcam.



:gflower: Thank you all and big hugs! :gflower:

You can't have it all. :tongue:

quite nice as well. :lol: :thumbs_up:

Due to popular demand,
PJL is about to give an encore regarding the Addo Mobile Webcam!


PJL wrote:So another trip to Addo seems to be on the cards :dance:

This time I'm hoping to do a day trip with the same mobile cam running plus a new 'close-up' cam... hopefully you'll be able to see some of the smaller or more distant creatures more clearly :thumbs_up:

As yet I haven't finalised when the day trip will be. But it'll be sometime between tomorrow (Saturday 11th) and Thursday 16th Feb. We're trying to keep our plans quite flexible for meeting up with friends here, but as soon as I have a firm date I'll let you all know.

Let's hope there are some exciting sightings
:popcorn:


Of course, we are happy about 'encores' in terms of pledges and donations towards the mobile webcam as well! :cam:



A start has been made:
Boorgatspook wrote:That would be awesome, PJL! :dance: And you can count me in to be on board again!
A R200 pledge from me to get you back into Addo again! :wink:
Lionspoon wrote:You guys gonna ruin me! :twisted: :lol:
But I'm with Spookie on this one!
Another 200 Rand it is, if we get another mobile cam day in Addo from you. :thumbs_up:
