This year our self drive photographic safari was 3 months long from February to May. We chose these dates to coincide with our 50th class reunion at Wits Medical School in Johannesburg. We visited Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park & Etosha National Park, & ended the trip by crossing Botswana quickly for a brief first visit to Pilanesberg Game Reserve. The KTFP & Etosha had areas that were very dry. We saw lots of game, but most dramatic were the scenes after short heavy rains resulted in explosions of yellow flowers (dubbltjies- Tribulus zeyheri). We have now started posting in www.africaraw.com the photos from the Rooiputs camp area. We will then complete KTFP before starting on Etosha & Pilanesberg.
