These pics are from BnD. There was reflection on the boards which I could not eliminate, but at least you will now have an idea what they are like!

Yep. Much better than the semi destroyed paper versions that use to be used. This was a great idea. Clever and reasonably inexpensive but of great value.

My SE came up with an improvement. She said they should have added a little white strip with a erasable marker that you could stick on the board to mark things other than the big 5 (or seven) that was very unusual.

Like a small little writing thing.

But this is very very well done as it is as well.

Sadly I have noticed that the little magnetic markers seem to be disappearing faster than the pins did. One or two boards had no markers available at all on my recent long trip.

Letaba shop didn't have a couple of weeks ago but perhaps they also have new boards located in other places in camp.

Saw and used the new boards at Pretoriuskop, Skukuza, Nkuhle Picnic Site, Afsaal and Lower Sabie last week. Much much better than the previous ones. Well done to all involved. :)
