Maaaaannnnnyyyy of these large fungus growing termites with their mounts around PhalaborwaImage


Thank you Lourens !

I assume these are the mounds so prominently visible in large concentrations on the tar road between Letaba & Masorini - closer to Masorini ?

Lourens , what chances are there that the trails rangers on Mphongholo will resume their interesting trail reports ?
