  1. Looking forward to your report and photos! :-)
  2. Thanks very much @Peter Connan. Your kind comment is much appreciated!
  3. Thank you @xelas! The light does get harsh very quickly in the summer months. You're right about the wildlife...it's certainly not a Kruger Park. The Karoo has a different appeal to us though.
  4. Thanks for your comments @Treepol, @Elsa Hoffmannand @Dave Williams. Elsa is far more qualified than I am on the touristy things in and around Cape Town Dave but I would recommend that you spend a few hours at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens if you can fit it in.
  5. Forgive me for not copying and pasting the report that I've posted on our website about our recent trip to the Karoo National Park...much easier to just provide a link for those of you who might be interested! :-) http://stuckinthemud.co.za/short-visit-karoo-national-park/
  6. I'm very jealous @Elsa Hoffmann....both with the quality of your beautiful photographs and your trip to the Kgalagadi. :-)
  7. Thank you Peter! :-)
  8. A landscape of the Karoo taken in the Karoo National Park earlier this month. I found it very difficult to capture the beauty of the Karoo in a photo but quite like this B&W effort! :-) Nikon D610 and Nikkor 24-120mm lens (@24mm), ISO 100, f/13, 1/125 sec.
  9. Excellent report @deano. I really enjoyed reading it and seeing your photos. The videos at the end of each edition added something extra...well done!
  10. A great report so far @deano. A pity you were in Cape Town during that storm but we needed the rain (and still do)! That 2nd wine estate that you stopped at while on your bicycle ride looks like Buitenverwachting. Lovely wines.

    A very nice report and lovely photos @garito01.
  12. Ditto what @Peter Connan and @TonyQsaid above. A thoroughly enjoyable read with great photos! Thanks very much for posting @xelas.
  13. My initial reaction to the first set of your BB photos was pleasure at seeing them complete with horns...quite rare these days. So sad to see the ones that have been de-horned in following sets. The consequence of human greed unfortunately. very nice photos once again BTW!
  14. Lovely photographs again @xelas. I especially like the Zebras in a line.
  15. I agree with JohnR...I think the effect of the long grass is great in the Cheetah photos!
