Hi Lynn,

Which of the Phinda lodges are you staying at? I recommend Forest or Vlei over their Rock lodge.

I stayed up late to read your report and it was well worth it. So many great stories about the animals--and I love the collection of client stories as well.

Thanks Bat,
I just hope I am never the main character in any of these outrageous client tales.

I am staying at Forest Lodge. Originally I thought I'd do a few nights at Vlei as well. With a couple thousand Rand separating these two places, I decided to stick with the less expensive Forest.

I recall you were not enamored with Rock. Thanks for the hints.

as my earlier post predicted, it looks like the skimmer males are moving closer and closer to taking over the Duba Boys reign. the latest update on wilderness-safaris website describes it well. The Duba Boys sure are smart though. So for anyone not having seen these awesome creatures i would suggest not putting off visiting Duba. Without these bros it will never be the same place. I'm very happy I got to see them on my most recent trip in aug as on my previous visit, we missed them.
hopefully i can figure out how to post some video i got of them feeding and keeping the tsaro females at bay when they tried to get a bit for themselves.

Big Country,

Reading the WS updates, there are a couple of nomadic co-alitions as well, in addition to the Skimmer, i think the Duba Boys are going to have an uphill struggle ahead!

Will we be able to read about your trip at some point, Big Country?

I agree, I felt honored to be able to see the famous Duba Boys in good health. That's great you saw them on your second visit.

Guess I was away when you wrote this excellent, well written, humorous and incredibly helpful report. It sounds like you had some sightings - wow. Patience does pay. Now I must get a trip quote for each upcoming trip - one more special thing to look forward to.
