I wonder who is swinging from the rafters :hmz:

R100 for a correct guess.

I think the tarzan-like 'mite is Melph - that seems like something she would do :D
That is a very nice thought and idea, MM

Speaking of donations - I think (from memory) I guessed four of our 'mites correctly, which means another R200 going into the fundraising for the mobile cam :roll:

Hopefully we can raise some more (much-needed) coin for this awesome project!!! :pray: :D

ils, yes yesterday was just a fun day and one I'll never forget!!

Mel, you are correct!!! What a fun girl, Melph!!! I had the privilege to drive with the two Mel's and all of us was longing for the 3rd Mel!!! No excuse for next time.....

MM......collect your money!!! (I saw you had a great time with Melph in J'burg)

PJL, yes Ronnie is on the right of the photo with the blue jeans. On the left is David (Melph's father) with a blue sweeter.

Vinkie, thanks for posting the pic!!!

A warning!!! Prepare yourself for the greatest Trip Reports!!!!!

Last but not least.......DANKIE DANIE !!!! Danie made the photo session possible and had all the trouble to keep the six of us under control (didn't succeeded with Welph). He switched the cam to see us and used his lunch break for that!!!

Koedoe, thank you for your observation.

It was wonderful to see Melph and Dave. Very, very special people. Hansa might have to produce a few more beers though, after our meeting.

I have met Lionspoon and Spots.

A more wonderful yellow ribbon moment, I cannot imagine.

Hi to all the cammers and formurites out there,

Firstly I would like to thank SANParks for granting permission for this event to take place. :thumbs_up:

To Danie of SANParks for swinging the webcam around at the prearranged time and capturing and zooming in on the images.
Many thanks Danie, much appreciated. :thumbs_up:

A big thank you to all the cammers and mods who have commented and participated in this event in any way. :thumbs_up:

Thank you to all who have contributed and made pledges towards this event. :thumbs_up:

To Koedoe, it was great meeting a local formurite and hope we can arrange another meeting soon. :thumbs_up:

To the overseas visitors,

WOW how great that was to meet two couples for the first time in Addo from two different continents, AMAZING !!!!!!!

To David, melph68’s dad, a man of many interests, I wish you all the best Sir on all your planned travels around Australia. :thumbs_up:

To Spots whom I thought would have something spotty about him.
Instead I found a man wearing something very bright, as seen on the webcam, to attract Lion sightings he tells me.
Well that shirt certainly works because we had amazing lion sightings every day.
I wonder if Spots was wearing that shirt when he spotted a certain Lionspoon and attracted HER attention....... :wink: :naughty:

To melph68 and Lionspoon, my formurite friends. :)

It was great meeting you in “real life” and now that we have become “real friends” :D :D

It was a pleasure meeting all you folk in Addo.

A privilege and honor for me to take you around and show you Addo Park.

I would love to do it all over again. :clap: :dance:

Till next time.........

Hello friends :yaya:

I'm back in Sydney but feel as though half of me is still in SA :tongue:
I had such an awesome time there 8) 8) 8)

I too want to thank Lionspoon for her enthusiasm and commitment to raising funds for the mobile webcam, and Danie for making the cam event a reality :gflower: :gflower:
Plus a big thanks to all the cammers who participated on the day :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Also I just want to add how wonderful it was to meet Lionspoon, Spots, RonnieL and koedoe in person :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:
My Dad and I felt privileged to spend time with you all. It was a really fun day :D :D :D

Lastly, Ronnie - you are an absolute font of knowledge on all things Addo! Your guiding skills meant we learnt so much more than a regular tourist would. Thank you - it made our Addo experience very special :clap: :clap: :clap: :gflower:
