Jerry Hattrick on safari... again

Unread postby Bush Baptist » Wed Oct 17, 2007 8:43 am

Hi. My dad, Jerry Hattrick will be in Kruger this week, again (LOS - lucky old so 'n so). Look out for an old white GP Merc, with an even older little guy driving. I told him to fly the YR, but who knows.

Got this sms last night
'Hi, we saw about 53 elephants on the Sabie River today and on the way home we came across 2 huge rhino just before the Kruger gate'

If you are there and see him, say Hi.

Spoke to Jerry tonight. Today's drive to LS produced a lot of kudu, and eles again. Te toilet situation at Nkuhlu is still disgusting, with the same description at was reported a few days ago. When he exited at Kruger gate, there were 2 rhinos on the other side of the road, but smaller that the previous 2.
Nobody reported cat sightings. He saw one YR, but could not catch up!

Tomorrow he is off to Tshokwane.

Spoke to Jerry last night.

Highlight of the day was a black mamba that sped across the S100 in front of his car. No cats again, but lots of eles and 2 sentry rhinos as he exited at Phabeni. Not many birds, except a pile of vultures on a carcass.

He goes home today, but it will not be long before Jerry Hattrick goes on safari again.

I just don't believe it. :wall: That was less than 3 weeks ago! I got a call last night, from JH. 'Guess where I am going on Monday, HAHAHAHAHA".
You got it! He will be in Kruger from Tuesday 6 November to Thursday, staying in Hazyview. He drives an old white Merc and has promised to fly the TR. If anyone sees him, please stop and say Hi.

Jerry did the N1 highway today and saw one male lion in the riverbed. It walked along and he went from inlet to inlet with a few cars behind until it disappeared into the bush. Lots of eles today and an eagle photo which he will email to me.

Working on it WW, a few years ago we were within a whisker of buying into a consortium of 10 in MP, but it fell through, the owners changed their minds after one last visit. :wall:

BTW, you live in Kgal don't you, and just go to the Cape to allow your children to go to school
:twisted:

Sometimes your parents need a good talking to, more than your children.
