Just outside Nossob Camp - pair of Bat eared foxes on night drive

Having camped a week in the Mabuasehube, and seeing lots of raptors but no big cats, we were looking forward to Nossob & Mata Mata but we were told the place was full. We managed one night in a room in Twee Rivieren camp and we had to leave. So this time we booked well in advance, and were not disappointed we saw a coalition of Cheetah,lion and the night drives were brilliant.

We loved the yellow mongoose wandering through our campsite, one sat by our tap waiting to take a bird. We discovered he was successful when we found feathered remains! Unfortunately I only have an SB800 so not too many night shots, but after reading your review of the Quantum flash I think I might treat myself. Hoping I can use the Quantum power SB800.
love the web site

Moringa leopard
by: Mario

Hi Graham - yes, the leopard drinking at Moringa is our pic. It was a challenge to eventually capture the image - have you ever seen a leopard at the camp waterhole?

Leopard
by: Graham Everett

I been to Etosha many times, and always admired the leopard drinking at the Halali waterhole (my favorite waterhole) in reception, but only on my last trip last month had I realised it was yours Mario!

Mongoose
by: Francine J. Crockett

Yellow mongoose in camp is very beautiful. People love the yellow mongoose wandering through the campsites. These camps are great for kids to enjoy the small critters.

Little critters
by: Jenny

Graham thanks for sharing your experiance and photographs with us - both these little critters are a pleasure to photograph and can give one many lovely pics. It's not always about the big cats that most people want to see, which is a shame because they miss out on the little guys.

Sounds like you had a great time!
by: Mario

Hi Graham

Keep in mind that the Quantum is a little more bulky than an SB800/900, especially for night drives. You may want to first try a Better Beamer on your existing flash. We use our Better Beamer at the Halali and Okaukuejo waterholes in Etosha plus at Mata Mata and Urikaruus. It narrows the beam and concentrates the light providing up to 3 extra stops.

If you go to Kalahari Tented Camp, Kieliekrankie or Dolomite camps then you will definately need the Quantum flash!
