A very warm welcome to you. :D

You are speaking with the converted here. Chirinda and I are leaving on Tuesday for Mapungubwe. I truly love the place and a return trip has been on my wish list for a long, long time.

What an interesting little bit of info about the Voortrekker Monument.

I finally got to see my first Mapungubwe lions last Thursday night! Fittingly at Leeupan. A female with 3 cubs. In fact there was a lot of lion activity around Mazhou with lions including a big male roaring loudly and continously from about 2am and moving past the camp around 5am.
