Why report on lots of Rhino sightings. We are not supposed to report rhino sightings

Thank you for your concern about posting Rhino sightings TripleTail, but we can all still enjoy these wonderful sightings, as long as the authors of travel tales don't give away the locations where they were seen. Have a look here: :thumbs_up:

Hi Hilda
I agree but the thread under which they are posted gives the general area where they are. Better to post rhino sighting separately and not under a particular camps thread. My opinion anyway
