I was excited as FINALLY everything was ready to do a bit of live reporting from a waterhole, as I had remembered the cable from the camera to the laptop this time! O/\

Camera - check!
Cable - check!
Laptop - check!
Cellphone signal - check!




No water... :shock: 0=

:evil: O/

/ou/ (0!)


Faaaaaark!

Still some animals, though... :O^

So off I rushed to find some water somewhere... 0*\



Water in the sky! lol

Down the S130 it is like a dead fairy forest... O-/

We were following a Kori bustard that was certainly not going to leave the road and go into the scary forest! :no:

We went on for about a km until a car came from the front! O:V

And then a hideous monster just next to the forest! 0: :shock:

This giraffe appears on the "interesting behaviour" thread and seems to be going on fine... -O-

q7.jpg

Full of beans I screamed into Duke Waterhole's parking...and it was dry too. 0: /ou/

So I just drove around aimlessly. O**


There were swarms of warthog everywhere, which is actually a good sign regarding veld conditions! \O

And theoretically I saw lion! =O:

You should have got a better pic of the Kori. You don't often see them on the road ;-)
