    • Hi Cindy many thanks. I have just had malaria so could not do much for four days but now a lot better, so back to doing what I do here. So happy you like my videos. Love Karen and the hippos x

    A wonderful video of the new mum with her little one 🙂 Also the beautiful gentle bushbuck and the remarkable water monitor. THANK YOU Karen 🙂 A special treat as I sit looking out on the snow – with a temperature of -16’C this morning and -25’C forecast for early next week….. My very best to you and all the wonderful animals who share your life

    • Thank you Esther and aren’t we humans funny things. I hear you talk about snow and the cold and I think how lovely. As here for the last few days it has been really really hot and humid waiting for rain. Tonight thank goodness its raining not yet much but better than none at all. I also saw 9 painted wild dogs on my evening snare patrol just five mins from our house wonderful. Enjoy your snow while I enjoy the fact that it is raining tonight Love Karen and all the hippos and other animals xx
