Wow there are some really special sightings at Talamati! I wonder how often Pangolins and hyenas encounter one another?!

Is there a lot of general game around Talamati as there is around Satara? We noticed there was not a lot of general game around Tamboti this August, but that might have something to do with water sources perhaps?

Was great meeting Ras.
Thanks for the awesome night drive.
We got to see rhino, 2 elepahnt bulls fighting, spotted hyena, 2 side stripe jackals (first for me), steenbok, duiker, bush baby and alot of other general game.
Ras is excellent and his knowledge knows no limits.
Thanks again.

Great meeting you Ras. Could have done with lions on our sunset drive! However we saw a lot and was very enjoyable. Thank you very much.

Hi Ras
We are with you for three nights at the end of May. Do we need to book night drives ahead of our arrival? Thanks
