I recently made an all-too-short visit to South Africa for work – despite very limited free time I managed to visit Addo NP for a day and had an afternoon out between flights in Cape Town. Originally I had hoped to stay for another week to try Lesotho or Northern Cape to add to the mammals I saw in the west of the country in 2013, but work and home commitments prevented this. Luckily it’s such a great place for mammalwatching we still saw some goodies, even while ‘working’ (=bird surveys)! Details are in the below report.
Georgia via a stop in Istanbul next week – I think more birds are on the cards than mammals but I’ll report back if there are any interesting sightings.
