Hi all!

I spent a night at Moretele Tented Camp in Borakalalo ("Bora") on Monday 18 June 2007.

My birding side-kick and I charted up a whopping 103 species in approx. 36 hrs! The birding is excellent at the moment. The Klipvoor dam is very low and thus birds are confined largely to areas near to water. What's more there are reasonable "winter" discounts available for accommodation.

I HIGHLY recommend Bora at the moment. I have racked up 136 species there in three visits. This last visit added 12 new species to my life list.

Hi Hanno,

Borokolalo is an excellent birding venue.

I once stayed there during the week and had the entire campsite to myself for 4 days.. absolutely perfect for birding!!

That was my first sighting of Finfoot.

Cheers,
Gordon
