what people think about it
Crackin' fine capture..spot on timing!
they were at the same bird bath- we were there a month ago getting tested for stds
How very unique. The albino almost doesn't look like the same breed as the one with regular coloring. I wonder if both these two civets were photographed at the same location/watering hole?
The northern part of the Kruger is not so congested. Punda Maria and Shingwedzi camps both are not overcrowded and we had lion sightings there aplenty. We did not see wild dogs there, but a mother and two cheeta offspring are regularly seen in the Klopperfontein area near Punda. In the south we try to drive mainly the gravel roads, but still not as quiet as the North. getting tested
thanks for the info, much appreciated! Do you have any links to stories about the relocation? That sounds very interesting indeed!
thanks for the info, much appreciated!
Take an untroubled trip to Ithala Game reserve in Zululand! Don't stay at the Hotel; reserve one of the rustic bush-camps. They are a "take your own" option where you bring whatever food and personal items you need as there are no stores or any kind of shop within 100 Km and definitely no traffic! iMfolosi park near Hluhluwe is similar.

Bwabwata looks like good fun
We saw so many elephants at horseshoe!!
Nambwa is a great place to stay, and Horseshoe is an unknown gem for sure! Also a must-do is Nkasa Lupala National Park, just a bit further south...
Went up North in the Kruger last year, was indeed more quiet but also many of the bush was burnt, unfortunately :(
Khaudum NP in Namibia has wild dogs and lions. The Kgalagadi in South Africa is not as packed with people as Kruger (in fact, is pretty awesome!) and is great for predators, but there are no wild dogs. If you stick with Kruger and don't want to see many people, stick to the north but I believe the wild dogs are more in the southern bit. Chobe, in Botswana is also great. If you have the money, go to Tswalu in the Kalahari in South Africa. A pack of wild dogs has just been relocated there this week and it is a pretty amazing place.
Another option is the Umfurudzi Park north of Harare, Zimbabwe
thanks for the reply Cristina and Jelmer...I am under the impression that Kruger and the OKavango have some of the highest traffic volume though? thoughts? I'd prefer somewhere that is a bit off the beaten track so that my money goes towards supporting conservation efforts that arent as well known but equally important (plus I dont want to be in a crowd of 30 4WDs), I had planned on going to Mole national park in Ghana but after a bit of delving into journal papers on camera trapping of lions in Ghana, it seems that unfortunately Lions are no longer found in Ghana at all (contrary to what their tourism website says). for stds
I love Nambwa! We had a hippo grazing our campsite at night. Good thing we were sleeping on a roof top tent. A leopard visited the place the night before, too bad we missed it! Definitely, stay at Nambwa, I am planning on going back there.
Where would you recommend staying? Also at Nambwa?
In my experience, the best chance seeing Wild dog at Kruger would be near Pretoriuskop. Camping as a cheaper option works perfectly indeed @cristinagarciabrindley:disqus
Bwabwata is one of my favorite places!
You can camp at all these places as we never stay at fancy lodges. If you want to see lions and wild dogs, the Okavango or Kruger are perfect.
Especially Bwabwata looks incredible! Will most definitely be on my itinirary when visiting Namibia, thanks for that. Now have another excuse to visit my favourite continent again
Id prefer to spend all my money on extra time looking at the wildlife rather then paying for ultra fancy lodgings, do you have any reccomendations for cheap places to stay where I can see wild dogs and lions as well? thanks
:) stunning thank you!!
Hang every damn gang member! Unfortunately the contaminated flesh won't even be suitable for fertilizer!
Can our police be used more fruitfully please. Our children badly need protecting from deranged adults in our society. I would far rather the police be visible in areas where children are preyed upon. Let these gangster scumbags sort themselves out!!
They REALLY want to get him. Let's hope they're not frustrated much longer.
and so the glorification of criminal scum continues.... more airtime for the sewage of our society, and unsurprisingly more tax-payer resources spent on protecting this rubbish....
hehehe Elsie.... sal dit nou 'n mooi gemors wees as die ou strydrosse ook onder die vergrootglas kan kom.... Ek sal die uitkoms daarvan geniet ....
Met 'n amper tweederde meerderheid in die parlement...? Nee wat vriend Marinus.... die kanse vir wysiging van die grondwet tot die effek dat die president van sy magte sal moet afstand doen is suiwer wensdenkery.... Die enigste wyse waarop die politieke wil tot daardie vlak sal verander sal wees as die EFF verder anargie saai....betoog en brand en verwoes .... en selfs dan sal dit maar .n tos wees of hulle wetgewing wat hulle in die toekoms kan bevoordeel, as hulle die magstryd by die stembusse sou wen, van die wetboek sal vee.... Ek stem saam met jou.... nou na twee dekades van die NUWE grondwet begin dit deurskemer dat ons kundiges, wat destyds so te koop geloop het met versekeringe dat die grondwet soveel teenwigte ingebou het dat die land nooit sal verander in 'n totalitêre staat nie, die bevolking en veral die Afrikaner gruwelik in die steek gelaat het.
Tog is daar ook magsmisbruik ooreenkomste tussen die RSA en die DRK, en in albei gevalle is die burgery blote kermende kantlyntoeskouers wie daaglik verder verarm en die effek van die gebrek aan regering in geregtigheid moet trotseer. Ook befaamde en verbale Afrikaner leiers is skynbaar magteloos om 'n alternatiewe selfbestuurbestel, - oortuigend tot op grondvlak, - toegepas te kry.
Flip vat weereens die bul by die horings. Hier moet die konstitusie defnitief gewysig word, Roelf en die ander ouens moet maar help. Ons het hulle vertrou, maar hulle was miskien ook betaal om hulle mond te hou, politici is almal geneig om dit te doen. Die obenbare beskermer moet miskien terug gaan in die geskiedenis?
Uitstekend Flip! Inderdaad 'n geweldige leemte in ons grondwet. 'n Skande dat soiets ooit toegelaat is tydens die onderhandelinge vir 'n nuwe grondwet. Hopelik kom hieroor verdere diskussie, en 'n wysiging van die grondwet. Die nodige politieke wil daarvoor sal nog eers gekweek moet word.
