Location: Taiwan but from Phalaborwa
It's my first time on this forum. Why do we first have to leave our country to realise how fortunate we are? Currently I'm teaching English in Taiwan (Island? Rock?) but i'm a veldlaaitjie from Phalaborwa. We live right next to the Olifants River before it enters the Kruger Park where my dad is chief of water sciences at Phalaborwa Water Board. I can recognise the free ranging elephants from a distance and miss them sincerely. You'll always find me somewhere busy exploring the veld, teaching schoolkids, foreign friends and lately international exchange students from Italy and Spain (until i left for Taiwan), the importance of conservation and let them experience for themselves the mightiness of nature underneath a star filled sky. Luckily our town is built around Phalaborwa Gate and therefore we are used to wild animals in our beautiful Town. I miss the sunshine, the lion's roars at night while i'm in bed, the lonely hyena wooing around the house and the unmistakeably, spine - chilling call of a night jar. I miss the warm afternoon wind rushing through the grass, the sunset and the call of the fish eagle. My father is well known for his ability to imitate the fish eagles call and sometimes they respond. We've became so used to our surroundings and experiences in town that it was part of everyday life. Now suddenly, i realise how blessed we are. I'll be back in Feb.2007 for a two week holiday and can't wait for my first night around a "veld fire", a "kierieklapperkoffie" and the sounds of nature. Thanks for the web cams. Thanks for everyone supporting SAN Parks Forum. I've found a new family....

Aussie

Worked for SA embassy here in Canberra from 98-06
Visited SA 6 times during those years. First visit to KNP was for 6 hrs.
Trip # 7 to SA, has 21 nights in KNP this Sept.
What a pity it is so hard for one to be able to move to their second favourite home.

On my mothers side we are 1820 British Settler stock and my Dads family were pioneer Rhodesia now Zimbabwe and also Cape Dutch after arriving in the Cape in 1681 from the Hague in Holland. So with this 300yr melting pot I guess I can say I am truly South African!!
