Thanks everyone! \O

I think that snake was a Cobra, but not sure which one. It was a very big snake, whatever it was. :shock:

Yesterday, after explaining to a new person at reception, that my couple card is for J-Lee and me, which this person could not comprehend, we finally got into the park.

It is definitely not a good time of the year for game viewing, the bush is very green and VERY dense. You can't see more than a few metres in from the road.

So here are a few pics from yesterday...
