Balule Bash, November 2013

I see the previous topic (Balule 2011) is "locked" away...

Anyhow, except for one spot, the Bash for November this year is all sold out. The Balule Bash is a Midrand HR initiative that got highjacked by me for the last few years. It is a very special event due to a number of reasons:
1. The rustic camp
2. The 5-star bush experience provided by the HRs... from the exceptional catering to the innovative bush decorations, the ambiance is superb.
3. The hours and hours of bush drives and walks under the guidance of arguably the best bird guide in Kruger NP that cannot otherwise be acquired and enjoyed.

One of the many birding objectives of the weekend is to show off the Balule Pel’s fishing owls. However, over the years we have encountered some very special birds on these trips and I am sure this year's Bash will not be any different.

Eish Joh, I am going to the other side of the world and would have just returned. I am sure the Gov would not like me immediately taking off for the other side of the country as well.

Raincheck please. I WILL do it.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

Johan, ok, are you saying there is still one spot?
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.
