Well done folks, looked like you had a ball (apart from the night drives!)

And there was even a cheetah photo :D

Donation duly made (rounded up to a nice AUD number :wink: ) - hopefully got it right with Sanparks Conservation Fund (Kruger) :redface:

Yep, got myself in trouble wading through 37 pages of it this morning :D :redface:

I spoke with a couple of the field rangers last June when I was in the Kruger and was well aware of their lack of equipment so I take my hats of to you guys for organising this. Great initiative and very, very well done.
