Kruger Proposals

Unread postby kallis1786 » Wed Jun 17, 2015 3:15 pm

Hi Everyone :gflower:

I dont know if this question has been asked before, or is this even the right place to ask such a question.

I am planning to ask the big question to someone very special in my life, and I thought there would be no place better to ask than Kruger.

So the question is do they staff at Kruger help in preparing for it, and if so, who would be best for me to contact, in this matter.

Wonderful news Kallis! :dance:

I think is depends where/how you want this special occasion to be:
in a restaurant or out on a sunset drive etc?
Possibly speak to one of the hospitality managers at the particular camps you plan on staying at and seeing what they can suggest?

Have a read through Planning a special day in Kruger I'll never forget which is how another member popped the question!

Sure others will come up with some ideas!

Kallis, there is some lucky lady out there. 8) I really, really wish you all of the best.

Just a thought, I know that you are an animal of the north. Have you considered Thulamela?

Hi Kallis

We where in Biyamiti for our honeymoon and the staff were great. Everything I ask was done to the room and we had even a special sun downer.

I believe if you have some thing in mind they will go the extra mile. Just email the staff at the camp you are looking to stay and I think the will do more than what you need.

Hi Everyone

Thank You soo much for all the wonderful congrats.

I really appreciate the advice as well. It is slightly scary to be asking the question.

MM Thulamela is not a bad spot at all, but I would prefer visiting the South for this particular occasion, as it will be her first time ever to Kruger.

I am just waiting for my Mom to arrive from the UK on Friday after which I will start plotting a plan on exactly how am I going to go about everything.

Although I must admit I am nervous :roll:
