    Hi all,

    Not so long ago we had a good friend visit us at Liam Urry Safaris , he stayed 2 nights before his flight home to Europe and as he is not a huge hunter he took a few shots with his camera. He asked me to post for him as he isn't a AH member and the language barrier.

    Just a few pics to show what type of scenery you will find in the Northern Cape area near Kimberley.

    cheers,

    Very nice looking area and the animals don't look bad either.

    Hey,

    Thanks Bob :)

    @ Spike that tortoise was about the size of a soccer ball you get bigger ones though. Often when rains they come out and we spot them.

    cheers
