Approx. 1m in length, but wasn't going to manually remove the chicanes for an accurate measurement! :D

:D Hi there all, Nkuhlu is one of my favourites, even in the "bad" :( times. The primates were terrible and we got a good idea :thumbs_up: from the staff there. Last year, we bought 2 rubber snakes to put down near our stuff at Nkuhlu - but it was not necessary - not a monkey in sight :dance: Instead it came in very useful at our safari tent at LS, keeping the baboons at bay on the deck. :thumbs_up:

Keep up the good work Nkuhlu - you are great :thumbs_up: See you in 105 days :dance: :dance:
