SMS From Ecosse Last Night:
Quote:
Shingwedzi, Red Rocks area again dissapointing. Occasional young bull Elephant, maybe due 2 the fact that rain rain hasn't come yet. At camp plenty Baboon activity. Ecosse


And another one Last Night:
Quote:
Would appear Kanniedood Dam best spot with Crocs, plenty Hippo & Elephant. Crocs sit on west bank @ dawn & east bank @ dusk 4 warmth. Off 2 Skukuza tom!


Im sure he'll see more game down south :thumbs_up:
