Just caught up on all your wonderful day trips as well your SHing trip with Leachy 0()
I'm so sorry that we didn't meet up at Sable hide, really looked forward to it 0*\
Great sightings, just couldn't believe that the weather wasn't the best when you were there in Dec...
What a pity to see the dead snake, I hate seeing roadkill, especially when it comes to snakes, I don't see them a lot in the Park
Just love all the beautiful pics of the birdies ^Q^

What a nice Tusker O/\ O/
Thank you the snake ID, I also thought that it might be a cobra but wasn't sure :-?
Show respect for wild creatures. DON'T report your actual sightings on the internet!!!

^Q^ ^Q^ ^Q^ Sprocky!

I am no fan of snakes, but that's a beautiful specimen, too bad it was not with us anymore :-(

Nice tusker!

That reception "tannie" will never make that mistake again, that for sure! 0*\ Eish!

Damn, I can't believe it's been so long since I was last in the park! 0*\

Anyway, I'm not sure how often I will be going in anymore as I have lost all interest in SANParks at this stage. There are better places to see and experience the wild in this area. But, last weekend was our meet at Skukuza, so here are a few pics that I took on our way home...

Rhino, between Skuks and Phala... O**

This Vervet was looking for an opportunity to cause chaos...

And the last one, a departing Fish Eagle...

Not many, but the closer we got to home the less capable I was of handling my camera. O** X#X

Nice pics, although I think you'll find your vervet is a boon! :twisted: \O
