Mabula Birding and photography long weekend
 
A group of eight enthusiastic people met Joe and Lisa Grosel at Bona Thaba lodge in the Mabula Game Reserve mid-afternoon on the 15th of June 2017. I was surprised by the beauty of the lodge and the sweeping view overlooking the plains with the majestic Waterberg mountains in the distance. Soon after enjoying cake and tea on the impressive veranda, we departed for a late afternoon game drive to the Modjadji plains. ... [read more]
An outing to the Sebayeng wetlands

Our goal: to have the mist-nets up and open before dawn. No easy task in the dark when it feels like every Umbrella Thorn (Vachellia (Acacia) tortillis) is trying to get you and your precious mist-nets. ... [read more]
