Ton & Herma sightings, Jan. 2006.

received an sms of Ton & Herma yesterdayevening, they were going to do a bushwalk today for their first time. Can't wait to find out how they liked that and if they have seen something nice on the walk. Must be pretty tuff with this heat.

Recieved sms From T&H last night:

Quote:
We had bad Sunday... Herma was sick and no animals. Today (Monday) lots of buffalo & ellies but no cats. Tommorow walk with Paul.
Say hello to everybody!


In a follow up sms he said that luckily Herma is feeling better and they have some good medicine to help!

Really hope they enjoy the walk!

Must have been a great walk, they went out with Paul from Olifants Restcamp. He is a SUPER guide :thumbs_up: He seems to have a special talent to find rhino's (every walk we did with him we had at last one), and he doesn't have to find the lions: the lions seem to find him all the time, eather in Olifants or Shingwedzi region.
