Simon you asked to see these photos. The quality is poor, and you can be thankfull there is no way to transmit the odor. The trees around this location were literally filled with vultures.

In any case here they are. By this time I don't think the lions could take the smell either!

Thanks for posting these

I like these photos - the overall grey tone gives an eerie 'grave-yard' feel to the images.

the smell
by: Jenny

Bob I think I can smell it from here....ha..ha. I remember the elephant carcass we found some years back on the mpongolo loop in the Kruger. It was about 10 meters from us and I don't know how we photographed the vultures for a few hours while holding our breath each time the wind changed direction!

"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
