Hi All,

This thread is more about our excitement & count down to our year-end holiday to our much loved KTP. We missed our annual trip last year, due to a complete change in life (sold up in JHB & moved to Cape Town) & are now desperate to be back in the Kgalagadi.

It will be two years to the day, since our last trip & have 18 days booked

So thought I would post some pics of why we love the red sand dessert & please feel free to post your pic's of why you love the KTP
