Hi Sharon,

Lovely to hear from you, I'm having the most incredible time! I visited Knysna while on the Garden Route - beautiful town, had a boat ride then a superb meal of chilli and garlic prawns (Mmmmm) watching the world go by!

The Wildlife Rehabilitation & Release Center in KwaZulu-Natal was just fantastic, the staff, volunteers and of course the animals! I was very fortunate to be the foster-mum for a baby grey duiker as well as for the baby vervet monkeys - adorable!!! The most amazing, amazing place. :-)

Then onto the Monkey Rehabilitation project in KZN, nowhere near as busy, but to be involved once again with vervet monkeys was beautiful, and to have the opportunity to go out with Bruce & Sandi monitoring was a great experience.

Now I'm here at Tembe Elephant Park, stunning scenery, monitoring the Wild Dogs, it's been great as there was already females here but then released 3 males, so we were monitoring both packs and a couple of days ago the females and males met up.

Two days later we saw them and they were mating - no long courtships here!! Also been monitoring the elephants, then last night it was lion monitoring! Wow!!! Just love it all, the high you get when you hear a beep on the telemetry is indescribable!

I've only seen hyena at Mpila when I went for a weekend with Bruce & Sandi, just finished cooking a braai, female hyena walked up and started licking it - thankfully we'd just taken the meat inside!! She was huge - took my breath away!!!

As you know I'm then off to Hluhluwe, Mkuze and then iMfolozi - really looking forward to iMfolozi as I have recently met Antoine, the new Monitor, and apparently I'll be the first volunteer at this new camp - excited already!

Then Zimbabwe - hoping not to get nibbled by the lions!!!! And finally the Cheetahs in Limpopo! The past 7 months have passed in a flash! Just so grateful to be able to enjoy and be part of this fantastic conservation experience in a truly beautiful country!!! :-) :-)

Many thanks for your email and it's lovely to know that you're around if I need you...

Kind regards,
Sheran
