At last only 1 day to go before we leave for the best place on earth :dance: , I just could'nt wait any longer to start this TR and I will try to do a live TR from Lower Sabie :thumbs_up:

Well almost everything done, serviced bakkie, checked caravan, bought supplies drove SO almost to insanity as I am sooooo exited to go to Kruger I just can't wait anymore :dance: . Today I will get the fresh stuff, top up the nitrogen in the tires,wash the bakkie and caravan, pack all the stuff into the caravan and then just wait for tomorrow

Our wish list for this trip:
Big 5 for sure
Doggies
Cheetahs
Lots off birds
and just to have a great time

:popcorn: :popcorn:
