Hi Scouter and KG.
We will try and fit some extra hats/scarves/gloves in our bags when we come from the UK in September.

Counting down now!

Regards,
DASSIEDELIGHT & Peregrine Falcon.

Scouter, thank you for the pm.

We feel very privileged to be able to visit Kgalagadi and the surrounding areas. The very least we can do is try to give something back.

Bags packed, everything arranged, fingers tapping impatiently for our departure on July 19, then KTP on July 28. I'm beginning to think 6 days there will not be nearly enough!!

Jannie, its only a pleasure and a privilege to be able to give something back :D

Will be sending up a small box with Jonkers of mainly beanies, gloves, scarves and thick socks from our friendly turquoise and yellow store - also 3 balaclavas - please let me know if they are a hit or not worth buying more of :wink:

Cool :thumbs_up: - cant wait to see photos :)

Just spent 15 min with TWO porcupines outside by the washline - they have taken refuge under the cabin - thought Storm was going to look like one of those KTP lions with quills everywhere :big_eyes:

EXCITING STUFF :dance:

KG - yip :thumbs_up: and squirrels and guineafowl and Hadedas and Egyptian geese and Verraux eagle owls ( occasionally) and wood owls and an African goshawk and the occasional boomslang and a resident olive house snake near the stable and tons of different birds, not to mention the domesticated menagerie :tongue:

The porcupines were really exciting tho - has taken 14 years for me to actually see them - have often seen evidence that they are here with the occasional quill and all our Arum lillies uprooted and the bulbs munched but to see them was a huge thrill :D
