Another thought.

I would clear everybody out of Tamboti and stay there myself and invite guests to stay. Sorry all you other Tam lovers. :tongue:

Very tough question to answer.

I would consider Lanner Gorge, Mpondo Dam (opposite of the tourist road), Sirhini Dam, along the S125, and on the Biyamiti River (a few km's from the camp on the opposite side of the river).

I think I would choose near Biyamiti.

My castle will be erected just South of Roodewal on the Timbavati Road - on the not often used gravel road that ends up at a cliff face, pool of water. :dance: :dance: :dance:


Doispane is also a good option... once it has been renovated. :dance: :dance: :dance:

Upon retirement you are offered a house in the Kruger. :dance: Would you accept and move there to live there full time? Would living in the Park full time take away the magic of being in the Park? :?

If u take up the offer where would this house be situated??

:hmz:

We are part way there...we rent a cottage in Phala for 4 months.
Hoping to extend that each year, all being well. :thumbs_up:

Like I answered on the original thread.

Along the Shingwedzi River in the shade of those magnificent old trees.


And I will be on the other side of the river :)

On the S65, random i know, there is a dry riverbed about 7km from the S1, I would love to have a place next to it nderneath those wonderful canopy of trees...
Dreaming myself a safari tent there at this very moment :D

At the base of the koppie at Mangala. Not accessible to the general public, which of course is the whole point.
