Goal for this trip
1. Raise money for our rhinos for some sort of thinga-magig which is supposed to stay anonymous because it sounds more mysterious then and poachers would then think we are one step closer to their schemes...
2. FIND THE BROWN HYENA!!!!!!

Anything else you guys would like to know.... I do take Amarula instead of cash :tongue:

For those joining the ride from the Kruger Facebook group ... here is what this is all about. Let's support these mites!!!

Heksie wrote:Hi fellow forumites :yaya:
Another fundraiser to help our rhinos have started and your help will be appreciated a lot!!!!

This is where everybody plays part in helping our rhinos.

First check out the video and then you decide if you want to pledge anything for a sighting for a dare or just for fun towards our rhinos :thumbs_up:
We would like to add that you will have time till end Feb to realise the pledge as we know that this falls during all our holiday and festive times and money is then an issue.

IF ANY OF YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING THAT TIME WHICH IS 25NOV-7DEC...
THERE ARE 2 SPOTS OPEN AND YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO HOP ALONG THIS FUN FILLED BROWNIE SEEKING TRIP


I could not have done this videoclip without Hugo van Sittert. So I would like to thank him for all his time and effort :gflower:

I thought I heard the word "Amarula"?? Image

'K.. here goes!
I will pay R 100.00 for a super artistic pic of an Amarulatjie. Image

I will pay a further R 100.00 for a pic of Frank and a nice bird sighting in the same frame.
Image No photoshop!

I will pay R 50.00 for a pic of Scipio sleeping like a baby at 2am. The pic to show the time and date and may not be taken by Petra! Image

The brownie? Show me the pic first then I'll show you the colour of my money! Image

Plenty of Hyena around Shingwedzi, Although I have personally not seen one in a while, We still hear them at night.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the Webcams, be careful since you will be standing out, because there are many Lions and Hyena's around
