KTP Panoramas

Unread post by shane » Tue Nov 19, 2013 11:28 am

Thought it would be a good idea if we all shared some of our panoramas. It is always a great way for readers / first time visitors to get a great perspective on a scene.

We visited KTP end August beginning of September, so i will start by sharing a few images of !Xaus Lodge:

Was wondering whether anyone can guess which waterhole this is ? For all you regular visitors, it should be an easy one:
