Hope to see them again when we revisit end June 2014.

Sorry can not post the photo? Why?

How many lions do you see? Marie se Draai also June 2009

More lions at Marie's on the same day, but nearer to the waterhole!

We counted a pride of twelve lions in the riverbed!

Pasop en kyk rond voordat jy hier uitklim! Daar's dalk 'iemand' anders voor jou in die toilet!/These beautiful pictures by Theuns Naudé taken at Dikbaardskolk in Kgalagadi! Careful and look around before you alight from your vehicle! There could be "someone" else before you in the toilet!

These predators are not what one might have in mind nor the waterhole!!

But don't dare leave open the kitchen door or they will be in there looking for food!!!

Thank you Lion Queen and Jan van Wyk and all the other contributors for keeping this thread alive!
We have just returned from a seventeen day (wonderful) visit to a very dry KTP and the waterholes did not disappoint! Fortunately no predators in the toilets this time, but there were reports of that in the grapevine!

We have experienced a full blown Kalahari storm at Twee Rivieren and another ons at Nossob (maybe the first of the season!)

When we arrived at Kameelsleep waterhole these spotted hyenas entertained us!

....and I have more photos to upload at a later stage!
