6 Sleeps!
Arrive at Mata-Mata on the 27th, YES!
Order food, pack, check the equipment, lists!
Play youTube video - so Kell (Golden retriever) can go ballistic, he likes the Jackal calls (Nossob - when the lights go out thread!)
Look forward to meeting some forumites in Nossob!

Thank you everyone for your wishes. Safe travels to you!
Merry Xmas to those that celebrate at this time of the year.
We are about to have a braai and therefore we are signing off for now because tomorrow (26th) we leave early!
Of course the beauty of going to KTP is being out of contact for 2 weeks :D
See ja in the New Year!

We are finally back in Barrydale after a very pleasant trip!
After consulting our weather station it was COOLER in KTP due to the overcast weather & rain!
Barrydale had a max temp on 4th Jan of 46.5!
After a bit of hassle in Upington this morning with the vehicle (very friendly service staff) we got home at 5.30pm.
@Wanderw - hope you got back safely today! Nice meeting you!
Have fun and if you think you are getting a TR, it was all a JOKE! :D :D :D :D

Hi
Thank you all for your comments, we did have a great time.
Just worked out how to do the picture thing again, perhaps I'll make notes in the book.
Once again not all pics are perfect but they do convey the message.
Having read my book i don't seem to have made many notes so i had better getting going with some posting while things are still fresh (sort of).

This chap was on a mission to somewhere, but then he lay down in the shade and we had to get back because those silly gates close at a certain time.

There was some excited people as they could not get the electric windows up fast enough!
I always keep the ignition on! :big_eyes:

Not a very good picture. A lot of animals were playing this trick of being on the wrong side.
May I suggest park officials give them a little lecture :tongue:

OK, i could not resist submitting some more pics. A Raptor (i'm not good at id's) on the correct side of the car for photographs! He/she was quite far away - when i win the Lotto, i promise i'll buy a good lense... :wall:

Thank's to KG for helping me ID this one. A juvenile African Wild Cat, we only spotted because it was walking along the branch!
