    ... and Doosie have headed to Twee Rivieren and only the Emmanuel's will join us in Mabuasehube Game Reserve. For those uninformed city dwellers / bush whackers, this area is located on the extreme Eastern side of Botswana and is incorporated into the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park which together with the SA Gemsbok National Park covers an impressive 37 991 km2.
