The Lure of the Kgalagadi

    Our recent trip to the Kgalagadi was a real struggle in terms of sightings and interactions compared to our previous trip. -8 deg temps (apparently), but it really was friggin cold. We did see a lot, although far away etc. We added Honey badger and African Wildcat to our list on this trip.

    We started finding it very funny when the bushes, clouds, grass, rocks etc start playing tricks on your eyes. Below is a yellow “cape cobra” stick, spotted ahead, adrenalin pumping drove slowly up to take some pics, when bam, the stick froze 🙁

    I guess its all part of the fun. I have posted a selection of images from this trip at Photodestinations.co.za – here is the link

    I am now looking to book a “photo tour”, and your story makes me think I am doing the right thing to try to get recommendations before booking a trip!:o.

    As they say, “A bad day in the bush is better than a good day at work” There is no real “bad” time to visit the Kgalagadi and there were people there at the same time that had awesome sightings etc. Each season and month brings a different perspective and experience.

    The bush is always unpredictable. Which is probably part of it’s enduring alure. If you want to see something specific, your best bet is to go to the zoo?

    While I have been to Mabuasehube before, I will be going to the riverside for the first time in December. Can’t wait.

    At our zoo they are a bit sticky about me sleeping over and driving around in my car. Don’t want to offend them too much for obvious reasons 😉
