:D Good evening everyone!!!

Welcome to the NEW thread: Olifants Sightings!!!!

It has been a busy 2 weeks for me, after moving from Phalaborwa Gate to Olifants as my new place of work.

I guess, now you will be able to follow all the Olifants Rest Camp activity sightings news from here!!!

Since I started here, seen White back Night Heron, a few Leopards, Lion, and lots of beautiful landscapes and little forbs and shrubs in flower!!!

More of that a bit later... :D

Congrats on your new posting, Lourens! That's certainly coming full circle since I did the wonderful stargazing activity with you (and Juanita) way back in 2006. Any chance that you might reinstate that stargazing activity again? Will be looking forward to following your Olifants sightings :dance:

Looking forward to this new thread, as we will be spending over a week at Olifants this spring. We have stopped in for an ice cream and to get a replacement pair of binoculars when Torticat's pair died, but haven't spent too much time nearby.

:D Olifants Guiding department consists out of:

Dennis- Senior Field Guide
Vusi- Senior Field Guide
Patrick- Junior Field Guide
Travis- Junior Field Guide
Alfred- Junior Field Guide- and who is unfortunately leaving us end of next week, took a transfer to Letaba Rest Camp. The Mountain Bike trails are chasing the guides away :)
and me as their new supervisor, hahaha

Just a reminder to all, the activities we are offering:

Walks (Morning, River and Afternoon) Minimum age 12 years Above 65 years- need a medical certificate
Mountain Bike trails (Morning and Afternoon) Minimum age 16 years Above 65 years- need a medical certificate
Drives (Morning, Sunset and Night) Minimum age 6 years

I believe the guides are very positive, and are there to fulfil your expectations, so feel free to visit Olifants Rest Camp and join any of us on activities!!! :D
