Thanks Dotty,
I should mention the yellow ribbon as well!! When I saw the name Rietvlei, I immediately "thought" birds.

Wish I could attend, but although I will be near Rietvlei (at the Irene Market in Centurion) I will be working on the 11th :(
Really wish I could meet you all!

I don't think I've posted before? :doh:
I would love to join in on 11 September.
I spent the day in Rietvlei today and loved it. Was there at 6am and left at 3pm. Drove from bird hide to bird hide -and saw many animals too.

I am in!! I know Rietvlei very well. Any info needed, ask me please!! Birding is quite good!! Although it is winter we counted 90 species at Rietvlei 2 weeks ago!! Look out for the cheetahs, buffalo, oh yes you can also go on a tour to the lion camp.

I have another suggestion.. If we get 10 people to go on the night drive we could get a lapa and kuier untill late that night. I will find out tomorrow the tariffs and if the night drive for that evening is still available... Let me know what you think...

Night drives could in clude aardvark, aardwolf, brown hyena, serval, porcupine, marsh owl, grass owl, etc.
