Its a pretty predictable list...

That's terrible I didn't realize there was this issue there!! It's an amazing place. I spent a few days there a couple of summers ago. The exposed mantle of the tablelands is just so alien looking. But beautiful at the same time. For the tablelands hike you can actually pick up (for free) a GPS tour guide from the visitor centre. Gives you cool information about the area, plus informs you of a nice little waterfall that isn't vivislble from the beaten path :)
If you do go, also check out western brook pond!!! A must do boat tour (just try and get on the two level boat - on the top level for best photo taking views).

I will post some photos in the next few days when.

Yeah, there was quite a bit actually...although its rainy season, so between the high/dense foliage and the rain, it was a challenge to get pictures...I did manage to see baboons, monkeys, bushbuck, kob, crocodiles, hippos, warthogs, scorpions, and a whole bunch of different birds, eh.
