Wow there are some really special sightings at Talamati! I wonder how often Pangolins and hyenas encounter one another?!

Is there a lot of general game around Talamati as there is around Satara? We noticed there was not a lot of general game around Tamboti this August, but that might have something to do with water sources perhaps?

Great meeting you Ras. Could have done with lions on our sunset drive! However we saw a lot and was very enjoyable. Thank you very much.

Hi Ras
We are with you for three nights at the end of May. Do we need to book night drives ahead of our arrival? Thanks
