Just to remind you "spinners" - my broom comes along here, approximately once every day, if possible, and schweeeeps everything that has been posted before that day.

I can’t help but wonder if I’m part of the problem for the overcrowding as a day visitor and this may be affecting the quality of the experience for the overnight visitor who has paid the money to stay in the park :?


I am inclined to agree with you on that point , Image

I have seen many facilities at picnic sites and in camps battling with the number of people and I don’t believe that this comes from overnight visitors; therefore the crowding issues are caused by the number of day visitors.


So , we are back to the day visitor problem that seems to upset you,Image

I often stay in the park and lately have found cheaper accommodation outside the park


Image sounds like a real winner to me Mcook,
You would probably have a much better holiday outside the park, but on the plus side , you could come into Kruger and irritate the rest of us , but get there early , there is a quota system Image

Not just the South. We were in Shingwedzi for just over a week over Christmas 2012, and NOT ONCE during the time we stayed there, could we get into ANY picnic site or day-visitors area within reach of Shingwedzi. They were all overflowing from early morning to late afternoon. A few times we waited a while to see if someone would pack up and leave, but no one ever left, except those who, like us, arrived and saw that there was no space.


Been there , done that, and even got a t shirt ,The trick is to stand about and look pathetic :D or in my case, like a complete idiot who does not what is going on , somebody will always offer to share a table , and then they mostly eat of my skottle :thumbs_up: friends for life :thumbs_up:

How I wish I had the writing talent and photographic skills that our TR writers have.
A :gflower: to each and every one of our TR writers. You bring so much joy, precious moments and knowledge to our forums :clap:

And no, I am not about to write a TR, but would like to invite you all to enter this competition.
I have seen so many stunning photos in your Travel Tales, please enter them.
