Ha Ha Kaapsedraai..........very funny..... :) :)

Super Croc and great Hippo close up shots....thank you for keeping the thread alive... :clap: :clap:

Back from another amazing Kruger visit and as usual spend every afternoon at LP ....once again LP produce some amazing sightings. :dance: :dance:

There was a kill out of site on the right hand side and we could only hear the Hyenas fighting.......for me sitting in the hide a jackpot with hundreds of Vultures arriving plus other Raptors.

Luckily for me the traffic jam was in the walk way to the hide and the hide not to busy..... :dance:

This was also the first time ever we had a opportunity to photograph Vultures at the hide.

Please bear with me.......will share many images over the next weeks........ :thumbs_up:
