    I will be staying in Punda Maria Sanparks camp site 10 th October 2019 for 3 nights would you be able to guide me one on one or two people for a few hours / dawn dusk trip, or am I able to join up to one of your groups please?
    I lived in Africa for 40 years but have spent the last 20 years in New Zealand and so am keen to see as many of the endemic and special birds in the Punda Maria / Pafure region in that 3 day period.
