What are you looking at!?

on our latest trip, Sherry and I were only able to spend 2.5 days in the Kalahari, the first two days were not very eventful, but on the morning we had to leave, in 2.5 hours we sighted and were able to photograph 5 cheetah and 3 lions all within 7kms of Mata Mata camp! One group of 2 and a second of 3 Cheetah. Sherry took a photo of the group of 3 (into the sun) mock fighting. Hope you enjoy!

I like the 2nd pic of them sitting on the top of the dunes...makes a nice silhouette. Thanks once again for your lovely pics and for sharing them and your travel stories with us....we've missed them for a while.

"It's 764 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, South Africa

"Having a passion for the region itself and having to know about all dynamics, water holes and ideal roads for a period of 6 years - I wish I had this guide on my first trip already!" - Morkel Erasmus, Secunda, South Africa
