Also had an SMS :D
"Lit the braai, met Stephen while we were unpacking the car, got # 90, abfab, dead tired, windhoek, soon to be red wine"

No mention of animals :?

Hard to see if DB posted the latest from Gwendolen, but I sms'd her and got an answer. They have met Stephen and seen the (resident?) genet.

Indeed.
Everything that resembles our house cat and from there on growing in size qualifies in my book

Great to hear that they arrived safely at Kruger.
Meeting Stephen, the first braai and a windhoek or a red wine....
Sound like a fantastic start of their trip. 8)

Please send them my best wishes for fantastic sightings and an awesome and most enjoyable time.

Yep! Well, actually the links only, the normal text was hidden behind them. So I just guessed that the genet had not been posted yet.
