Hi Moose,

To be honest I just listed up the Parks in Afrika. If I would add it globaly there will come some additions... .

Anyway I have to say, that my Parents introduced to me to traveling since I was a Baby. Insteda of buying anew car they went on holidays. The many parks in South Afrika which I have visited is quite easy to explain. I´m comming from Germany but my Mom was born in South Afrika since 1996 I visit Southern Afrika regulary. From 2001-2003 I used to life in Lesotho. So instead of flying to Germany during my Holidays, I prefer to visit some Destinations in Southern Afrika. I bet that was a good decission. Except 2008 I haven´t visited South Afrika, but it´s time now :-) . Honestly I have to say that I have worked for 4 Month in namibia. After that I have done a treveling through Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Sambia. That is actually the explination for it. :-)

If you like I could sum up the global National Parks, but only if you wish otherwise I will leave it.


Thanks for the reply Malealea.
This started off as a complete surprise when I sat down and actually listed the Parks I have been to. I couldnt believe it !!! One tends to forget, over the years, where one has been. !!!!!
I should have added Yosemite NP , Yellowstone NP, Glacier NP , Mount St Helens (The volcano !!! ) and Grand Teton all in the USA. My SO is from USA and we visited those parks on our trips there. But (to repeat) I just couldnt believe how long the list was. :big_eyes:
Its great to hear from others where they have been and which ones they really liked.Thats why I would still like to visit a few on my bucket list :wink: You are lucky to have worked and lived in some great places. I envy you !!

My favourites are still KRUGER, Kgalagadi and Mana Pools .
In fact just being in the WILD with the absolute peace and quiet and the magnificant sunsets and sun rises is wonderful!!

II LOVE IT !!

A real travelling man !!! Its great to see that you have visited parks in the 4 corners of our little earth :dance:
But to hear that someone has done it all before age 26 is absolutely astounding.. :shock:
Imagine in 20 years when you are my age where you have been !!!

Hi Moose,

Yes indeed there are few other spaces I wanna go. e.g Samibia --> Kafue

Then Tanzania --> Selous

India_ Gir Fores and Sanadars NP

Then some Np in South America e.G Patagonia or Fireland

Well then I wanna go to Siberia once. You see some spaces left. I I assume If I´m dealing with these countres, there are more to come.

Oh I forgott Lake Kariba and Mana Pools.

Whats abour you?

Just spent 4 nights at Bergendal and was not impressed with the sightings in the area. Nor were mo
st people I spoke to. The bush is soooo thick !! Saw some rhino but not much else. Very few ungulates. In fact if there are lion in the area they must be vegetarians. I realise there have been heavy rains there in the not too distant past but the bush is very dense.Dont think I will be visiting the area again
