So happy to have booked my 8th trip to Kruger; my SO's second. It's been four long years. Already starting to pack even though we are months away. We all bring binoculars, camera, coolers and such. But we must all have some special things that we have discovered over the years/trips that we can no longer go on a trip to Kruger without.

Here are mine:

Rubber Snakes - we put them outside near the food which helps keep the monkeys away!
Large Insulated Mugs - so we can take coffee with us on those early morning game drives
Comfy Camp Chairs - we only book perimeter accommodations and sometime like to chill all day outside
Cigarette Lighter charger we can use in the car to charge our items while driving (camera batteries and such)
Whistle - You never know...., so I always have one around my neck especially around camp at dark

What are yours?? Looking forward to getting great ideas!

Dana

Black flat bottomed cast iron pot for bread (Bakpot - also used for stews and roasts when time allows)
Flask for coffee (to have early morning at the dam, view site, etc. with my rusks and boerekoekies)
Mozzie medication (I take a homoeopathic one- no after effects)
Plenty of cash(Petrol Card) for petrol - we like to criss-cross the park (the last 6 week trip we did 6000 kms in KNP)
Torch with rechargeable batteries - essential at night to avoid the creepy crawlies.
And if I don't take beer for the SO I will be left at home - there that is also 6. Sorry :whistle:
