Hello everyone - we recently returned from an epic trip in the Kgalagadi and Mabuasehube.  I am planning to write a trip report on my website, but it's still a long way off.  So meanwhile I thought I would share Mr Cheetah80's video of our trip

For those who are interested we stayed at Rooiputs, Urikaruus, Kalahari Tented Camp, Polentswa, Grotkoolk, Gharaghab, Nossob, Matopi and Mpaya 2.

Thanks @Tdgraves, yes our continuation in Mabua was quite exciting!  Was so great meeting you guys, and what are the odds of being "neighbours" AND meeting at the airport? Send my regards as well, Mr Cheetah80 also says hi  :)

Since we were there right after you, I'm very interested in reading about your sightings and seeing your superb pics.
The video is a good promise of things to come. Looks like most of your lion sightings were on the Botswana side?

Very professional.  The birds flying in front of the jackal was a unique effect.  Love the cheetah family, of course.  Great stuff packed into a couple of minutes!
