    Re: Nature reserve near Mapungubwe?

    It could be https://www.rathobushcamps.co.za/. Used to have a bush camp on an "island" in the Limpopo, but that washed away a couple of times. GREAT place.

    Re: Canon EOS 1000D value

    These comments are all valid. My view in terms of value are:

    Camera body: R700 - R1000
    18 - 55: R500
    75 - 300: R1500

    To sell as a complete kit: R2k to R2.5k = to an end user. You can expect...
