Oops, I didn't read the description so didn't know the wildebeest was impassable until I hit them.. but it wouldn't have made a difference as they're not marked on the map! I had no idea what to do as all I could see was wildebeest left and right. Unfair! Otherwise enjoyable and a nice challenge

The map and the conversion is still pretty cool, but the course is just horrible. Dont try to make a course just to trick people as much as possible. Especially making the first leg like that is terrible. Also, Impassable shit needs to be marked on the map. Making a huge area impassable where you just have to guess where it goes is not good. Wildebeast rng cost me about 3-4 mins..

Two controls so close together made me go from 22 directly to 24. Otherwise I could have ended ahead of Pale (something which has happened only once)

Orienteering had too much luck, but it made me laugh - running into lions and then the impenetrable wildebeest.

Coming face to face with a pride of lions was a bit of a shock, and the wildebeast were particularly obstructive!
