Stunning pictures Lion Queen, Jan, Goronta!!
Esp. the misty ones we never vistited the KTP in wintertime and never saw mist in the fields.

These "guys" are waiting for the (sand) storm, it was on our first day in the KTP, late afternoon. Back in the TR camp we had to secure our tent with some extra lines luckely the tent survived :D otherwise we had to return to Upington for a new one :redface:
I will have to search the memorycard of another camera, somewhere there are some pictures of the sand storm itself.

Thank you Mez, Lion Queen,

I hardly can't wait for you new pictures Lion Queen, I think the weather in May will be very nice, cool and dry? We never been in the Kgalagadi this time of the year.

This BW infrared picture was shot 2 years ago near the office of the Kalahari tented camp, the horns are not there anymore.
