Congratulations Michael and thanks for the pics.

Exciting times in MZNP.
Want to say Thank You or Well Done to a fellow 'mite? Why not nominate them for a Kudu?

I hope the lions do not stray too far away for the next few days. Wanna see them sooo badly Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
Gonna be back in KNP soon :thumbs_up:

The lioness has been around the main entrance road about 2-4km from the restcamp towards the entrance gate for the past few days
