Thanks Carol, knew we could count on you :gflower:

We can just sit here and wait a bit for sunset then we can *clink*, just feels a little early still :D

We can just enjoy this beautiful view and listen to the sounds of the bush in the meantime.

Thank you everyone for your congratulations and a very big HOORAH to Trrp. Well done Trrp, much deserved.

I can’t help you with a photo of Tshanga Tessa. The only one I have is on film and I have failed to locate it today after seeing it only yesterday. :(

Grantmissy, Trrp has found the perfect setting to end the day. :cam: I am at peace, quietly appraising the days events while sipping away on Amarula juice in celebration.

Thank you Carol for ensuring a constant supply for all occasions. :gflower:

GM, Tessa, Carol & Mizzbee ...Thanks for the lovely celebration we had last night, was just perfect. :thumbs_up:

Views to soothe the soul !!.....Tshanga is so peaceful, just to sit and listen.... admire the sights.... take a in deep breath and smell the bush.

I do hope MM is alright. :pray:

Beautifully captured Trrp. Impressive view :cam: . I have always felt rather vulnerable here.

After last nights over indulgence this is exactly how I should be feeling right now.Image

Thanks for that special view Trrrp. Another evening to have sundowners and to sit, relax, listen to the bush and catch up on todays sightings.

:lol: :lol:
You have just asked what I was about to ask Trrrrp :thumbs_up:
She is possibly very busy packing for her trip and making lists so that she doesn't leave anything behind. :k

Absolutely Trrrrp.....and her camera, we need to be able to enjoy some of her sightings.

We we have enjoyed an evening sitting at Tchanga and watching the sunset. I think it is time for me to head back to my bungalow, slip into bed and drift off to sleep, while I listen to the sound of the jackals calling and the lions roaring. Zzzzzz :k

The ellies are so special.....when they are in a good mood!! Love watching them though and love that rumble that you hear when they are communicating with each other.

Lovely photo Trrrrp.

Carol I think they chase you because you are competing with them for Amarula Berries! :D

Seems that MM has quite a reputation for being forgetful. :wink:

That is the perfect place for Ellies to be Trrp, in water and far away from me. :thumbs_up:

Not to worry Carol, you are doing a splendid job. :lol:

Talking about Ellies. I enjoyed an encounter between Ellies and Buffalo whilst at Sirheni on my last visit.
The first day, the Ellies chased the Buffalo away from the river. The next day the tables were turned, and the Buffalos chased the Ellies.
