Lovely pics. Lake panic is a special place, the likes of which the kruger needs more of. I foresee a situation in the near future where one will have to book for lake panic as people blatantly ignore the 8 car max rule and one regularly sees 12 or 13 cars there and the hide ends up jam packed to the point of being unpleasant. Sad really as it is a great place to while away some quality time
