Happy Christmas!  Last week we went up to the Pendjari National Park in northern Benin, and saw LOADS of exciting wild animals!

For example, here’s the elephant which crossed the road in front of us: Elephant crossing (2)

And here’s a gorgeous lioness, just in front of us:

These are amazing, Rob!

How did you get so close to the Lions without them thinking Clive would make a tasty meal?

The full-screen slideshow was fantastic (To see it, you need the Java Runtime Environment JRE download from

I’ve put some ratings on the photo based on my WoW factors.

There are some changes planned for your website – more features such as Geo Locations. So, hopefully with Clive’s gpx info, and the EXIF info from the photos, it will be possible to give a pointer to the exact location where you saw each animal!

Enjoy the rest of your time with Clive – I shall have to plan a visit to him to see all the videos (and see if I can persuade him to invest in a decent blog/events/photos/videos/etc website like THIS one!

Have a great new year!

Cheers, Reggie
