We were at Nossob in 2007, I had a newly purchased digital compact camera, Lumix and was eager to shoot the cats of the Kalahari. We spent 3 days at Nossob and had some wonderful sightings near the waterhole and on the road just outside the camp. The big male lion walked right out of the bush and strode right up to our car, pausing to look me in the eye before walking past.

The lioness and cubs were relaxing beside the road and even blocking traffic for a while, no one complained at all about the roadblock! We had many more sightings and I have since gotten a nice digital SLR with some good lens so hope to return soon to get some even better photos of these majestic creatures.

"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 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
