So thrilled to hear that the Woodies have arrived Jan :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Now I know that our KNP holiday is just around the corner. :dance: :dance:

Beautiful photos all round Jan, but just love the Squacco, as always :D

Beautiful pose and shot of the Grey Heron having a clean and 'freshening up'

We will only be at LP towards the end of our trip Jan. We are starting in the north at Punda and working our way down, over the 23 nights, finishing off at Skukuza, so I feel we may miss you, but I will keep a look out anyway. :D
