GO! / WEG! Kruger Park edition

Unread postby PietSkiet » Tue Feb 11, 2014 10:51 am

I am not sure whether a topic on this magazine exists but I could not find one. If it does will the mods please merge.

On Sunday night while looking for bed time story for the boys I came across my Weg! Kruger Park edition 2013 magazine that was published last year, hidden between their books. I was not all surprised as there are little they enjoy more than going through any type of book where wildlife is involved.

If you read my trip report you will know that in my 29 years of visiting the park last September was my first visit to a bushveld camp and I enjoyed it so much that I booked a couple of nights at Talamati in March which is just around the corner.

If you are the same as I am you will know with little over a month to go the excitement is reaching boiling point and I am reading every piece of info I can find on Talamati. So I rushed the bedtime story :twisted: and went straight to the bookshelf to get my hands on the magazine which roughly translated state "every thing you need to know about Kruger" and "info on all the camps"

I started to go through the index and there is nothing on any of the bushveld camps :big_eyes: :big_eyes:

I could not even find any mention of them, almost everything else I can think about is in the magazine but nothing regarding these camps which I believe is a very unique and special feature of KNP. I double checked last night and still can't find anything.

Does anyone perhaps know why the bushveld camps was omitted?? Or am I just being blind and missing them?

:hmz: Maybe I should offer to write a bit about Tal for them, Piet.

It is near Fairfax waterhole that can be productive.
It is sable & honey badger country.
It is not really overrun with game.
Lions & cheetah are the more common big cats, while you are more likely to see serval on a night ride from Tal than almost every other camp.
There is a very productive waterhole in front of camp, with a hide to view.
If the ever smiling Patson is still there ask him what time what comes to the waterhole.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

Hi Piet

We have an existing topic and I will merge yours to it :thumbs_up:
When you read through the existing topic, you will notice that we have a 'mite from the magazine commenting there. Maybe this 'mite will see your post and reply to your query.

Thanks for the advice BB,

Sable and HB will be a real treat and I am not to concerned about the game viewing. With SO being pregnant she and the boys will not join me due to the malaria risk so no need for frequent sights to keep everyone exited. It is just going to be a relaxing weekend where I am going to take in the magic of Kruger. Cheetah and Serval will be a big bonus. I can see myself spending hours at the waterhole.

Thanks Matthys I will go through the thread and see what I can pickup.
