South Africa. Part Two, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
Written by Jos   

Lion

 

Remote, wild and stunning, the Kgalagadi is truly an amazing place. Situated in a vast slab of land protruding up between Namibia and Botswana, it is in the Kgalagadi that the rolling dunes of the Kalahari are punctuated by the Auob and Nossob Valleys, shallow depressions vegetated by grassland and stunted acacias, populated by an impressive array of birds, an abundance of antelopes and gazelles and, most importantly, a density of feline predators to rival almost anywhere in Africa, plus good numbers of Brown Hyena and plenty more on top.

Ostrich 

 

 

A week-long loop starting and finishing in Cape Town. Incorporating the West Coast National Park, the remote expanses of the Tanqua Karoo, the fertile Agulhus Plain and excellent De Hoop nature reserve, this part of the trip then concluded with a number of localities around Cape Town itself, plus a super pelagic trip into the waters south of the Cape of Good Hope.

South Africa, Felines & Critters of the Night.
Written by Jos   

Introduction.

South Africa, a land both vast and amazing. Arid deserts, lush sub-tropical forests, lowland fynbos, spectacular snow-capped peaks of the Drakensburg, all combine to produce a mouth-watering diversity of both birds and mammals, the country boasting at least 850 species of bird and 300 of mammal.

Being in the fortunate position of having already spent over two years in southern Africa and having seen over 800 bird species on the sub-continent, this latest escapade of three weeks could allow me focus not only on the regions I enjoy the most, namely the arid semi-deserts of the Karoo and Kalahari, but also turn my attention to mammals in a more dedicated manner, the idea to seek out felines and some of the more elusive night mammals, all of which achieved most successfully.
