Yes, I think so MM. + according to my friends it is one of the few characteristics of a Sagittarius I have. I'm not terribly outgoing and I hate going out to clubs etc...

And I totally forgot to add camping on the Knysna camping decks!

Always wanted to do a bush walk, but left it too late...........I don't think that any of them are wheelchair friendly!!!

I must go back to the drawing board!! :whistle: :whistle:

Val maybe you had better join me on either the Lebombo or Shingwedzi 4x4 trail. That's when I get round to booking them.

Top of our Bucket List wrt KNP would be to spend some time in a River view / Best view chalet at Olifants. We took a ride / look-see to Olifants on our first and only trip to KNP and LOVED the camp and spectacular views! :-)

Another one for my bucket list.

Few things could be more interesting than being in the wild with these 8) folks.

We spent a night at one of the view chalets last year and I just wanted to stay longer and longer and longer...

I am Sagittarius as well and most certainly have the meandering tendency. Keeping still for any length of time can be a challenge.

Mapungubwe again, many times, and the flowers, but also all of the parks I haven't been to which is most of them :D

And somewhere to see whales would be nice too.

Top of my Kruger Bucket List is .... To sit by the fence (any fence) by MY "casavan"
and just watch a glass of nice white in my hand :bcool: .. But unfortunately as I live
over here in the UK I don't imagine that will ever happen :cry: :cry: :cry: .. So I
suppose maybe I should just blah my way and sit by someone else's caravan.. :hmz: :hmz:
When you next in the park Isinkwe :wink: :wink:

Isinkwe seems to have made a name for himself. :wink:

I am taking one thing off my bucket list in a few months time. I am spending a night with some of my family in Shipandani hide. We will have two Kruger novices with us, so that will make it even more special.
