We visited Addo on Easter Sunday 24th April and as we were leaving one of the viewpoints we were halted by Pookie, rushing over to meet us and have a chat, because she saw our YR. :dance:

Pookie made some lame excuse about her YR was on the other car, but anyway, I was great meeting you, Pookie. :clap:

We only saw 2 other YR's but they just waved and drove on......even though I stopped and reversed...... :doh:

If they didn't see me reversing, I wonder how they spot animals in the bush.....may they have to be stationary.... :huh:

We always fly ours and have met some amazing Forumites, especially in KTP. :thumbs_up:

It is a great ice breaker to meet new friends. :dance: :clap: :dance:

Pleeeaaaassssse keep the Yellow Ribbon flying in the parks.

We were in Kruger from 28th May to 12th June. I forgot to take the yellow ribbons so we stopped at the Phalaborwa Spar and bought a pack of bright yellow all-purpose cloths and cut them up into ribbon shapes; they worked perfectly! Not only that but you could clean the windscreen with the loose ends . . . . :lol:

Before we acquired our own YR we met Mike Goss in the south of the Park on 28/5/11 because we saw his YR and stopped him! He was a bit puzzled at first until we explained! Sorry Mike, but we did get one the next day!

We met Aquila at Mooiplas waterhole near Mopani on 1/6/11. We were both watching elephants and he was chatting to someone in another car when he suddenly noticed our YR and zoomed over, delighted to meet another YR because, he said, no one ever believed that he would! Great to meet you Aquila, hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip!

On 7/6/11, near Tshokwane at about 8.50am we were passed by a browny/bronze BMW X5 flying the ribbon but though we waved madly, they didn't see us. Sorry we missed meeting you guys! Then on the same day after lunching on the deck at Lower Sabie we came back to the car to find a note on the windscreen "Spotted Cat says 'Hello'". We drove round the car-park twice looking for YRs, but I think you had left. Really sorry to miss you Spotted Cat - strange to think that we may have been on LS deck at the same time!

On 10/6/11 we meet Hobbit and Tweedle (by arrangement) at the Hippo pools, and then moved on to Crocodile Bridge for a cooked breakfast with them before exploring the S28. Lovely to see you again Hobbit and Tweedle and thanks for the loan of the walkie- talkie! It was a lovely day.

Never spotted a YR during our last trip in May :cry: Travelled almost 2000 km in the north of the park , from Punda to Crook's Corner , all roads around Shingwedzi to Mopani , down and around Satara , even the world famous S100 , but I must now come to conclusion that YR's in those areas are now extinct :big_eyes: :big_eyes: , or so shy and bashful , that they do not wish to display their colours during daylight hours :doh:
