Pafuri picnic site

Unread post by DinkyBird » Wed Nov 08, 2017 3:10 pm

We visited Pafuri twice in the last few days, and I had the pleasure of meeting Mandla Ngomane, who is the attendant there. He told me he learned some birding from the legendary Frank, and is keen to learn more. He already is a favourite with visitors it seems, and has a nice pair of bins and two bird books to assist him on his quest.

It seems the tradition may continue with Mandla.
Wishing him all the best!
