Totes amazeballs GM.

I am swooning at the merest fleeting thought of my forthcoming trip to Mana pools (thanks to @Anita and @wilddog). Issue 2 put a cherry on top of what was already a beautiful sunday morning.

GoodReader has an option to read PDFs with a layout called 2-up with title page which makes it read like a magazine.

I've edited the first post including details of Goodreader, the app as recommended by @JohnR.

Lovely cover shot @Anita.  @Safaridude's Conservation in Focus is a great, insightful article.  Looking forward to the other features too!

Lots of good writing and beautiful photography in this issue - this will certainly help a couple of train commutes to London pass with unusual haste.

 

If updates are possible, there are some omissions from the list of exclusive campsites available at Mana Pools to self-drivers: adjacent to the river, Ndungu 1&2, New Ndungu 1&2 and Gwaya, and in the southern sector of the park Chitake 1 (Nzou) and Chitake 2 (Shumba).  As this is a visitors guide, it would also be helpful to include details of how campsites and lodges can be booked.

A quick note on the spider article:  On the 4th page (last page), the picture to the far right is a Burrowin Wolf Spider, while the picture above the flattie (next to the wolf) is a Kilimanjaro Brown Baboon Spider (not the other way around as shown in the article).  No hard feelings toward GW :)

Great interview with Charles Oluchina.  His dedication and bravery are inspiring.  His views on tourism, wildlife, and conservation were sobering and informative.

Wonderful job! I especially enjoyed reading about Benson Siyawareva (the section featuring him in the book Licensed to Guide was also rather good) and about Solo.

Just re-read the whole issue cover to cover. What a super job, Matt. Each article was better than the others :) Are you working on the next one now?
