Hello Everyone; I am living the dream at the moment. For the last five years it has been my plan on retirement from 20 years of High School Principalship in the UK, to spend the first year in The Kruger. My family agreed this was an ambition of a lifetime and they will visit Christmas and Easter. I left my school on 31st August 2014.
It has been a great September and I am scribbling bits (with the odd pertinent photo) on a new facebook account I began just for that purpose, to keep family and friends posted about what I’m doing. They seem to be really enjoying keeping up with what I put on there. Now it occurred to me that some of the regular forum readers might like to read my facebook account. Happy to do that if anyone can tell me how to do it.

Welcome to the Forums maxbullough! Not everyone is a Facebook Fan! Why not write your report on the Forum under Travel Tales? We would love to follow your dream here! On Facebook it disappears so quickly, it will be difficult to follow! :dance: :dance:

Hilda is absolutely correct - why not turn this into your report of your experience - you have started now just keep it going. At the same time I would like to follow you on Facebook - please send me your link. I am longing to follow your experience - it is a total dream of mine to spend a year in Kruger but I cannot ever see finances allowing it so I look forward to sharing your time there.

I tend to agree with Hilda. The Sanparks forum gives you an instant following and safe access.

Unlike facebook, the Sanparks travel tales stay for as long as the Sanparks forum exists.

Hi guys. My problem is internet access. I'm using portable WiFi and it takes so long and uses so much of my data allowance to do the facebook thing for all the guys back home I fear I can't double up on the forum.

:idea: Why not do your trip report here on the forums and just post a link to it on facebook, Maxbullough ?
That way your family and friends could read your daily updates and the support and feedback that you will be getting here 8)

Hope that is yours, but is under your name. You posted pictures of your camping equipment and the image of the flying Marabou Stork.??? Just a yes will be OK, would like to follow your year in KNP. Njoy :D

Hi maxbullough

It would be wonderful, as others have invited you to do, if you shared your accounts of your trip on the forums. If you do want to give out your facebook page link via the forums, the only way that can be done is that you apply to add a link to your signature here, and pay a small donation to the SANParks VHRs for this.

Hi. That is my page with the Maribou stork on it. I will try to make the link so anyone can see my bits on some wonderful things so far. Not least the little vid I put on of a pride of lions (8 of them) at Shingwedzi and a snap of the wild dogs I saw this morning on the way to Letaba.
Thanks for your encouragement guys.

Wow. An amazing opportunity!

I will also add, as some others have already.
I am not a fan of Facebook.
And the SANP Forum does seem like a fantastic platform for an ongoing trip report.
