Hello forumites

I'm a field guide at Talamati and I will be posting sightings from the bush camp with the aim of providing an insight about this precious little area.
gotcha say that elephants by the waterhole in front of the camp are a STANDARD!!!

Welcome to the forum ras! :clap:

We look forward to reading all about those amazing sightings!

Can't think of a much better way to wake up than with the roar of a Lion! :D

thanks very much

yesterday i went to assist at Orpen with morning walk and bingo, a male leopard walks right in front of me. just a couple of hundred metres from talamati entrance. unfortunately i was the only witness

later on on the sunset drive we saw two lions and yes i had witnesses.. maybe you may want to be one of those witnesses next time, just don't forget to bring your luck. :D

Those lucky sightings are always the best, but are much better when shared with others.

Looking forward to more Tales from Talamati, Ras.
