I am sad to hear that it is so dry in the Kalahari.
When I remember how green it was 2 years ago, at the beginning of March, I wonder how the animals will cope (although I know they are perfectly "equipped" for arid regions).
I keep my fingers crossed for a looooooooooooot of rain coming down in the next weeks!

Don't worry, it will chuck down in 4 weeks when we are there!

Sounds like my luck as well BB, we don't have to have the beer in the Rooiputs pool but probably the road puddles :tongue:

Yeah Tobieo, with the cricket the week before there is no chance it won't rain.

Look out for the fire engine. I was going to pop into Rooiputs but now I have a good reason to do so. :thumbs_up:

Hi BBaptist
Will be at Mata Mata, March 17-19 with a bus full of school kids. Hope we meet somewhere at a cheetah sighting in the Auob! And yes, a bit of late rain would help, so we can have a few late springbok lambs being born too...
Gop bless,

Friedrich von Horsten
