Journal and/or animal 'checklist'

Jump to last reply

Hi all. Our trip to S. Africa is less than 4 weeks away now, very excited and down to very small details in planning. I've seen people mention that they carry a travel journal and make notes while on their safari drives, or later that night. I've also seem mention of animal checklists but I don't know if people bought those somewhere or created their own? I feel ilke I've seen mention that maybe some of the lodges give those out, or maybe they do that for the kids? (We'll have our 10 and 13-year-old kids with us). I'd just like to document our experiences trying to figure out the best/easiest ways of doing that, so I'm interested in suggestions from others who've done this before! If there's a particular journal you've used that you like, I'd love to hear it.

We'll be staying at three different lodges: Londolozi, Phinda, and Kwandwe (which is in the Eastern Cape). After that, we'll visit Jeffreys Bay and Cape Town.

Thanks!
