Keep on bragging :clap: , love your photos NetEk. It’s great to see somebody else with the same obsession :shock: :lol: 8) . Nice snake! We too saw a python in June, Western Section in the forest gallery. It’s wonderful to look at your pictures and dream of the river and the elies.

Has this girl visited your side? I named her Barcelona because if she could sing I’m sure it would be as powerful as when Montserrat Caballe sings Barcelona with Feddy Mercury. She was collared at Mashatu in a tracking project but I think the battery is dead. An amazingly dignified being. Hope to see her again.

Thanks MM and Giraffee

I have to looked for a ellie with a collar didn't know there was one will keep my eyes open.

All I saw with a collar in December was one of those dogs (anatonial or something like that) they use to watch the livestock. Him and his goats were next to the "highway" between Map's eastern gate and Dongola lodge.

Gave me a heart attack. It was early the morning and I have some shopping to do in Musina and as you know just before Xmas you makes sure you are in and out of Musina early before the transborder shoppers arrive. So I'm on the road before my first cup of coffee and in the distance I see this shadow cross the road but the shape is clearly predator. No you can't see your first leopard next to the highway, I'm thinking I slow down and there he is standing next to the road. I took a very bad pic with my cell ( I know never leave your bed without the camera) will see if I still have it and post. I was just happy to see the farms around trying something more leopard friendly.
