40 years kalahari visits part 6

Jackal on the dune.

Jackal on the dune.

Some days as it goes with nature nothing happens except for occasional sightings of loners. A Jackal on the run, early morning Birds of prey that just do not give you the chance to put it in camera for memories. As the day goes on the heat rises and inhabitants of the park seek shade.

If you are lucky to be at the right waterhole there might just be some interaction between Gemsbok bulls that turn up the dust with the clashing of horns. A spectacular sight is up to a 100 Springbok moving along to a waterhole with their head held up high, one white mass moving at the same rhythm. Once saw a Cheetah attempt that ended up with the Springbok leaving a dust cloud that enveloped the Cheetah to such an extent that he stopped dead in his tracks!

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, founder of CAROK (Camps and Roads of Kruger)  South Africa
