24/05/2010 - E-mail from Malcolm Pickard
Back in the office today and Pafuri Rivercamp seems a distant universe away.

Thanks for another wonderful night in the comfort of your camp, an experience in solitude that will be long remembered. Thanks also to the elephants who visited the river just after midnight and who, although staying just beyond the reach of my torch beam, certainly made their presence known.

The delight of being visited by a hippo at around 04:30 paled into insignificance as the dawn announced the arrival of the day I could finally fetch Jaccy back from Eco Training.

Please thank both Cos and Robert for their hospitality. We will certainly be back.

Kind regards. Malcolm.
