Hi James, I've attached two maps of the areas we travelled in with what we saw and where. I couldn't upload to a PM unfortunately..:|


Hi Koppycat,
Would you mind posting the maps again?

We are off to B & D next weekend and it would be fantastic to see which areas are "hot"

What are current conditions like in the B & D Area?
Very tall grass?
Thick bush?

What are the best roads to take in the area?

I will be staying at B & D for 5 days from Sunday. :dance:

Thanks

Hope those come out?

The conditions are really good after lots of rain, grass is tall and the bush is quite thick. All the roads around BeD offered good sightings while we were there!

Right, I see the maps are now loaded! I had the size too big!

We had great luck in the evenings taking the Matjulu road back to camp, had two lepoard sightings and the badger on that road. From Afsaal we also had great viewing returning on the H2-2 and then onto the S118 that runs next to the Mlambane river...
