Singita Photo Album

In cleaning out my office, I came across a CD and after popping it in, I was delighted to find a few forgotten photos I had taken while at Singita in March, 2002.

Unfortunately, I did not take too many pictures of the lodge, but the wildlife was incredible, although with it having been my very first lodge, I just thought it was normal to see a pride of lions feeding on a fresh kill from 5 meters away, as well as seeing possibly 5 rhinos and a cheetah with cubs. Almost makes me want to go back!

Forgive me for feeding apples to those adorable monkeys outside my room. It did make for a few nice pictures of them trying to break into my room, and these monkeys were always around camp anyway, and would snoop down and steal food from the brunch area at any slightest opportunity.

As many pictures as I did get at Singita (mostly in an earlier photo album), I kick myself when I think of how many photos I deleted as a result of not even knowing how to crop my photos back then! That is exactly why most of these photos never showed up before.

Anyway, I am glad to find about 20 decent photos that I was able to post at www.ofoto.com

I do have more Singita photos in my album titled "Rocco's Photos" dated 07/11/2003.

Follow this link and enjoy.

Has anybody else had problems viewing the album? It comes up for me on my own computer with that link.

Somebody had an interesting trick on viewing problem Ofoto albums, but I have forgotten the process.

Sandi,

I sent you an invitation to view the album (I had an old e-mail of yours still in my mailbox, providing me with your address).


Cruisinred (and anybody else interested),

If you provide me with your e-mail address, I will send you an invitation. Also, I have other albums that covered my last two years in Zambia for Cruisinred or anybody else interested...just let me know.

Neither the original or Sandi's links work for me - Rocco, could you send me an invite please?

Kavey,

I sent you an invite but by looking at my guest book it looks as if you may have gotten through.

With 11 new visitors signed into my guestbook today, it appears as if the link is working for many people, but for anybody interested, just post your e-mail and I will send you both my new photo album and the older one that contains the majority of my Singita photos.

Roccco, we'd love to see the pix, but the link doesn't work for us either. Please send an invite. Thanks.

No, it will open up the generic Ofoto page with thumbnails but I'm unable to access the full size images properly...

I got in easily w/ Sandi's link. Thanks for sharing the pics Rocco. Loved the vervet monkeys trying to get into your room. So cute!

Thought I'd give it another go and this time I could not only get in but open the images up to see more than thumbnails! Lovely, thanks!

mjulius,

I just sent you an invite to view each of my four photo albums, all containing photos from my last three years of safari in South Africa, Zambia and a little Zimbabwe.

Please post a link to the photo albums so the others may also enjoy.

Thanks.

Roccco, thanks for sharing the photos. You've gotten some incredible stuff. Makes me want to be back in Africa right now. Thanks also for sharing the info on Zambian lodges. We'll definitely give these a try.

Here are the links to Roccco's photos. All the albums begin with the following:
http://www.ofoto.com/BrowsePhotos.js...rue&US=l5ggd1x.
Then for each album add one of the following:
7mkd7jb1&Uy=-daqj9a&Ux=1
49vfvcux&Uy=5r2yx3&Ux=1
4qsr7czl&Uy=-0s99zcc&Ux=1
el1vw3l&Uy=bn3vnv&Ux=1

Hope these work for everyone.
