One important factor to consider imo is the lack of affordable accommodation at KTP
Kruger (the south) has many cheap options.

What if you have a fear of sand? Or more particularly a fear for the scorpions that live on sand? :hmz: :tongue:

Speaking of Injury, I have a perfect print of a Cricket ball, seam and all about one inch below the crown Jewels, eish, that was close. :big_eyes:

Camping in TR, that should do it for me, :hmz:

I wonder what is more painful, a sting/bite from a scorpion or spider or a cricket ball aimed and hitting the delicates? :whistle:

I actually follow the, If I don't see it it doesn't exist rule, i.e. there are no such thing as scorpions in Kruger because I have not seen one yet. :shock:

We had 2 beautifull Boomslang at our camping site. :thumbs_up:

Weltenman, cold sweat I tell you, so no scorpion will bother me at TR. :big_eyes:

But back to the question? KTP pro's.

Stars, Lions, scorpions(Could be one), KTP itself, the Capies coming to Cricket, less humidity, barking Ghecko's, Leopard at the confluence, Something new, Awareness creation, a grass skirt is cool, Kruger mites that never saw KTP doing KTP. :hmz:

Con's: No elephants.

Kruger pro's: Lions, snakes(Could be one), KNP itself, the Capies coming to Cricket, more humidity, barking Wild Dogs, Leopard at the Marula loop, Something old, Awareness creation, a grass skirt is cool, Elephants. :hmz:

Con's: No barking Gheckos.

Well, I will go to both. :thumbs_up:

Just think about Skukuza cricket :hmz: Yellow riboons driving around all the roads on game drives!! Meeting up for chats and free to roam around in a big YR fest :dance: So much freedom and flexible fun!

The solution proposed for the petrol money for the gautengers going to KTP is to tour bus together! But with that comes a herd of sheep that have to be told - be here, be there. Without cars, no freedom to roam around :(

Cheetahtjie .. there are an awful lot of CT mites and those in other provinces closer to KTP than KNP and it would be great if we could meet mites from the "other" side A bus sounds great It is only for the cricket if you must sight see on your own bring your own transport.Actually it is a long distance for the CT mites too but they are passionate about "their " park which is KTP and want as many to enjoy it too

I suppose it would be to difficult to arrange simultaneous meets? Then mites could choose which one to support, and maybe have a bit of rivalry somehow between them. :hmz:
