irenehawk,

Good on you for going to Kruger for a day :thumbs_up:

Must say, it's not something I would do though.
For one, I am really not that keen on driving long distances. So if I do that, got to be at the destination for a decent amount of time.
And also, I find that it takes me a day or two to get into the whole atmosphere of Kruger. To me, it would all seem a bit rushed.

Just my opinion..........

Last year October we drove to phalaborwa gate got there at 13:00 and drove through to Orpen gate by 17:55 and left. That day was the inspiration for this one night stop as we enjoyed the one afternoon trip so much.

The only problem was we returned through lydenburg dullstroom... (bad move in a hail storm) :cry:

Thats why we thought a one night stop was a good idea.

I've already done two weekend trips to Satara (from Jhbg) and I would do it again in an instant.

I think its very much worth it in this crazy world we live in and any bit of KNP time you can get is definitley a must. If (or i should say when) I get to go for one night it would be lower down south though, 4 1/2 to 5 hour trip to the gate and the same back home.

Any time in KP is worthwhile - we sometimes go for 2 hours (OK we live close) Last trip I did a week ago - went in at 05:30 came out at 09:00

Saw four of the five - two different sets of Lions (Tow Lionesses Roaring away ) and another pride of 10 odd Lions with cubs - and then 20 Wild dogs - all on Doispane Road - My friend saw Black Rhino and Leopard as well and he left the park at 07:00
