Just heard from JB & B:

Quote:
Hi, was on sunset drive and saw a leopard... Was stunning! Also lots of springhares, genets, 3 herds of buffs (1 very big). The guide said that Frank is on leave. What should we do now? Take the chance & leave it with someone or take back home for somebody else to MAYBE bring along sometime?


I told them that I would be in Punda on 2 Oct if they'd like to leave them with the camp manager I would take the binocs to Frank. Does anyone else have any other ideas?
