Oh Shucks! Here comes N.Y.A.M!

Hi Forumites :D

I leave for Africa this Tuesday to save the small nation of Nambabwe from marauding rebels :tongue:

Not quite, I am coming to beautiful South Africa and will be visiting Golden Gate and Addo as I make my way from Durban to Port Elizabeth. I am looking forward to it immensely! I currently live in Australia, but grew up in Zimbabwe and this return to Africa has been a long time coming. I have missed the bush terribly.

My main aims are:
- to immerse myself entirely in the bush experience. The sights, smells, sounds, dust, rain, trees, grasses, insects, birds, reptiles and mammals. Everything!
- to find a flightless dung beetle in Addo
- to procure a copy of Panic Mechanic with Leon Schuster – my favourite movie as a child. HiJack :lol: (see here)
- to brush up on my southern African slang. e.g. "Howzit my china did you scheme the elephants tuning grief with the lions at Hapoor?" 8)


My arranged transport looks something like this :wink:

But seriously, if you see a VW Polo with a yellow ribbon say Hi!
Hopefully it will not be in a situation like this :shock:

Its not KNP or KTP but I would like to share my visit to these great Sanpark’s with you guys. I hope you enjoy :D as I'm sure I certainly will.

4 more sleeps till I am on African soil! :D :dance:
There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks them all :D

Proud to be a Batpup and a Stiffneck!

Golden Gate: 12-14 Sep 09 ... Addo: 16-18 Sep 09 ...

Hi everyone :D

I have just finished my trip to Addo and Golden gate and am now sitting in a backpackers in J-Bay.

Wow, what can I say. The two parks were very different, but both amazing. I will prepare the TR soon, but here is a teaser from Addo...
