Birding Zim

I'm part of a small birding group to Zimbabwe in a week's time. We have one spot open on this week-long excursion. Anyone interested drop me a PM.

I'm sure we will, arks. I've never birded the southern African territories north of the RSA borders, so, I'm expecting to harvest a tonne of feathers! :lol:
