Mooi ry (drive safely) Heksie and enjoy! Sounds like this trippie is going to make memories!

Skillie has another challenge for the Brownie Bunch:The resident S90 Cheethas: R100 per cheetha! (there are four brothers and they like to sit or lay on there mount and watch the traffic!)

And Skillie has another birdie challenge: R10 per ostrich in the Satara area.

Then I found the VVV birdie in only 2 of the 20 birdie books (long search tannie VVV) Afrikaans: Geelvleknikator, English: Eastern Nicator. BTW, there is only one specie of the Nicator family in Southern Africa and it's this one, so good luck as I see there range is mainly in Moz, a bit of Swaziland and a small corner of Mapumalanga, maybe a chance to spot this birdie at N'wanetsi!

Sounds like fun, wish we could join you, I'm always game for a good snipe hunt, or should I say Brownie hunt.
I have money in hand ready to toss it in the Brownie bag as soon as I see pics.
