Hi all,

Brooklyn Birder will be in Cape Town in early August, and would love to meet forumites, especially those who have been to KTP recently. Practically, the best time to meet would be Friday, 5th.

She is staying in the city centre, and a budget/family meal was mooted, so if you would like to join us, please take this as the official invite for 19h15 or so at the Waterfront (Santa Ana) Spur.

Please reply via the thread, so I can book closer to the time.

We have not recently been to KTP; but since moving this way, are dying for a CT meet as we have read so much about the fun you guys have, so count us in!

Coming back from KTP the 4th, I don't know if I can make it, so if I can it will be a very very last minute decision

BB just alerted me to this thread, sorry I didn't introduce myself before! :lol: I am excited that so many have expressed interest, will be great to meet some of you--I've been reading many trip reports--Scouter, Caracal and others-- and posts--recognize many of your "names".

Jonkers, sure hope you can make it as BB states you will have up-to-the minute info!

Can't wait for our trip, just a few weeks now...

By the way, probably should add, this is our 2nd trip to South Africa, we were there in 2009 and visited Kruger, Dullstroom, Blyde River Canyon. Fell in love like so many others and now here we are coming back again!

Maybe I have hit too hard....


The important thing is that you all come along.


Kgalagadi talk is secondary.
