Comings and goings.

Nick and Helen are back from their leave and James and Rodney have left us. Rodney returns to Cape Town to complete his studies and James to surf the big waves. However there is little doubt that WE will see them both again one day.

Over the past few days we have been experiencing some further difficulty with the data line between Djuma and Pretoria and that has resulted in periods of the dreaded 'apology screen'. It seems now that the problem is subsiding, but this evening's game drive was cut short because of a fault on the game drive vehicle. Jan reports that the problem is repaired and so hopefully it will be all back to normal from tomorrow morning.

I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into doing this for the world. Is it possible that we could have an update on the upgrade to the bigger "jeep". I have been able to get on a couple of times and have really enjoyed the drive.

Is it possible that the night lighting at Gowrie Dam can be improved? There has been good action at the dam the last few nights but it's nearly impossible to see what is there and what is happening if it's on the other side of the dam.

I appreciate the updates, and all you guys do at WildEarth.
I would just REALLY like to know when "the rest of us" will finally be able to watch the drives!

I can't believe no one has yet said Welcome Back to Nick and Helen, so, let me be the first. :)

The drives continue to be a real treat and despite the technical issues, no one is daunted, everyone is always in good spirits and happy to share the land and animals with the rest of the world.

Sad to hear about White Cloth's cub :(

Regards and continued gratitude from Smalldog.

Is there a problem with the WE cam? I haven't been able to watch it for three days now, and can't find any info about it. All I am getting is a black screen. It is so frustrating.
