Hari, there is a lovely lady waiting for you in Botswana!

And I hope she brings the kids.

Of course I am referring to the beautiful female cheetah whose territory spans Kwando and Selinda.

I believe you are off in under a week. Have a fantastic time and then tell us all about it. You can bring back the latest scoop on the Zib renovation.

Hope you see our cheetah friend and many other amazing sights.

Hari,

Have a great trip. Are you staying at any of they Kwando camps (probably a dumb question)? Private vehicle? Do you know your guides?

Hari,

My green monster will be looking over your shoulder

Whether or not you see the female cheetah, ask if Jade is still around. She is the one I've seen the most of (except for 'the boys') on my visits, with litters on two occasions, but other females have made appearances too. Say g'day to the boys. I also hope the Selinda pack does the right thing by you.

Yes, into the home stretch now!!! Leave next sunday (exactly one week!!!)

Thanks everyone for your kind words-Kavey, Imelda, Dennis, leely

Lynn- thanks so much for all the input you have given me over the past months about your trip from last year to Zib and yes, i will keep you posted on return.

John- I dont think i have enough words to describe my appreciation of all the Selinda/Zib input you have provided me over the past year. Infact, if not for your enthusiasm and passion for safari and Selinda, i doubt if i would have made the decision to go check it out!!! Many thanks......

Also, would like to thank everyone for their enthusiastic recent reports and photographs.....

Some that come to mind:
Johan: Thanks for sharing all your recent experiences and photographs. They are very inspiring and look forward to meeting you soon...

Richard: Your trip report was probably the most excieting i have ever read and i will pass on your regards to everyone at Lebala.

Marksafari: He provided immediate feedback from his trip to Zib earlier this year and that tent 1 is the place to be at!!! Loved his youtube videos too!!!

Recent helpful trip reports to J&K and thanks for your kind words......also, lots of other trip reports, loru100.

Kind regards,
Hari

Yeah, hope she shows up. In 2005, she had two sub adult cubs with her.....

Hari,

May you have a wonderful time in the little garden of Eden and hopefully you'll see what you are hoping for.

Travel safe and I'll see you at my favorite spot in the concession very soon.

Best regards,

Johan

I have been around Fodors only since december but this short time was in off to realize your enthusiasm and love for Africa and especially Botswana.

Have a wonderful trip and let us know at your return(I am visiting Lebala and Zib in november)

Good luck.

Paco.
