Keen??? Definitely!! Wether my work will allow it? Another question.

We where close to there this past week end. We found one puffy and one eggy. The duku duku forest is now the duku duku township, so your chances of finding a gaboon there is really not great at all.

Sodwana sounds like n great plan and if we could hold on till Jan, I would also like to tag along

Kewl. We were up that way this past weekend, but we found only an Egg Eater. NOTHING else, and trust me, everyone looked. I think the area needs some good rainfall before we go herping there again.

BTW, we left the Sunday morning, and the Sunday afternoon the place we stayed at found a Boomslang in the servants quarters. lol
