    Thanks for sharing Paul and many great photos. It is worth noting yet again that the Kalahari does also reward when it has rained.

    Thanks for the report and the amazing pics Paul. It was good to spend those two days with you at Gharagab - and good to see the fellow who made the visit to camp that morning!
