Heard from JB about an hour ago. (She said to me that she was going to share out the sightings reports and so I suppose Angels first :angel: :wink: )

Quote:
Hi, GREAT in KNP. 2 rhino's & other game. 71 species birds so far. Great sightings of barn owl & black crowned night heron. Eating in Skukuza now. JB


Do you think they took Jacov, the rhino magnet, with them? :wink:

Got this update from JB, very sad:

JB&BN wrote:
Lightning last nigt caused veld fires, from P/kop to far past Shitlhave dam. Large areas on both sides of the road burnt. Large flames due to strong winds. Had a couple of scary moments to go past the flames, both off us nervous. Found 3 rhino that had been sort of trapped, making terrible sounds. Wanted to get out and help. Scrubhare running and Eliphants.


Not a nice experience I am sure.

Yes they are 'doing' the whole Park. Started at Pretoruiskop now at Croc Bridge and will end up at Punda Maria so they will be delivering the *man at Pafuri's binocs too.

*not taking a chance here with his name :wink:
