    Jakkals, I have enjoyed your trip report and especially the great photos.

    Be assured that many forum members remember those that take the trouble to post trip reports which we all use for updates and for the memories they bring back. By the same token, those that milk the forum for information and then fail to give any feedback may find future advise less easy to come by.

    Each season in the bush has its own merits, perhaps a more extensive trip into CKGR towards the end of the rains should be considered?

    Foresure!!! This is not my first trip to Bots and sure as hell not my last. You learn new things every time. Its the exploration and learning new things about the areas you visit that makes overlanding so much fun.
