  1. Re: Trip Report: Pilansberg, December 2019

    Dankie Nobby, nog nooit by Pilanesberg gewees nie. Miskien na jou goeie verslag moet ons oorweeg om buite seisoen hier oor te bly, op pad noorde toe.

    Re: Bradt guides

    Yes Tony, but only a very limited selection of random countries. Ordering in any other editions was not easily arranged at all. I had tried on a few occasions over the years.

    Re: Bradt guides

    Johan, it appears that you share my view that Bradt all-round are the best guides for most East and Southern African countries. They strangely enough do not have a comprehensive guide for Kenya.
