Well it was easier to carry on here cos couldnt find my talamati post. so just to let everyone know.... Talamati rocks!!! We saw some seriously beautiful sable antelope, two white faced scops owls perched very close to road on way in and best of all, i got to see my dear friend the badger...i was so excited. saw some wonderful sightings of rhino and a lion or 2 here and there. So now at Letaba a wee bit chilly however more adventures on the way

aaahhh.... the smell from the potatoe bush always makes me feel like i am home, hearing the pppprrrrrrp of the scops owl and the woooOOOP of the hyaena is certainly amoung some of the best sounds to go to sleep to. Good night all the nature lovers. Sweet dreams and may you all dream of the exciting things that his lovely bush has to bring from the smallest critter to the largest of giants. SLEEP WELL
