Hallo Jan and thank you for this great thread with all the 'other' beautiful KTP animals that we all love to see and for the opportunity to host some of our own photos here.

Your photos are, as always, of a very high standard, but it is nice to see so many really nice photos in one thread. Thank you all.

This photo I took at the Samevloeiing “zoo”, sorry I mean, waterhole on one of our 5 visits to Kgalagadi.
