Happy New Year everyone.

Missed you guys. I have been of the Forum for a while. Been too caught up in the festive season going to sleep 5am in the Morning, and waking up 3pm in the evening :mrgreen: , so I just could not manage to log onto the forums.

Hope everyone else had a fab time over the festive season. Any Wishes for the New Year

I just came back from a Kruger trip of four nights at Skukuza!
I went with two people who have never been to Kruger before! My mate Alan and his las 8)
It was a great success as they swear they will come on another trip later this year :dance: :dance: :dance:
Converted Krugerians :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

We had very mixed luck! Quiet days. But also three insane sightings!!! :thumbs_up:

Hey v's :mrgreen:

Spargs the crickets have been around since christmas! But the festive madness is over (unfortunately :tongue: ) and hopefully all the v's will put in an appearance soon to air out the v's room.

Matt it sounds like you had an awesome time :D

Cheets when do we hear about these insane sightings? :hmz:

So any interesting plans for 2013?

Heya Beeps and Spargs :D

I'm not sure Beeps :hmz: I'm thinking of starting a travel tale later this year, that will be a collection of short stories :hmz: Each would be a story of a Kruger experience, with perhaps just one picture to go with it :D I have at times realised that some Mites just skip through the reading, and just look at pics :shock: And I think pics are great, but telling stories of the bush is a tradition which seems to have fallen by the way side! I think the story tellers should step up 8)

I still need to finish off Somewhere Over the Rainbow though :slap:

Hey guys :D

Quite unfamiliar as to how this group works but nevertheless! I'm Mark, 20, from Bloemfontein, studying B Com Statistics and working as restaurant manager! Nice to see other people as interested in wildlife as I am!

Have a super week! :dance:

This is basically just a chat room for forumites our age :D You can chat about absolutely anything :D Sometimes it feels like there are no people our age with our passion for wildlife, yet this is not the case! We like to stay connected and build friendship :thumbs_up:

Sounds like a busy first month Spargs :shock: :shock: :shock:

Tell us a thing or three about your trip to Krugs? :D

Hey every one

I have started my new TR, taking a lead from what cheets said about story telling, I decided that even though I am not much of a story teller I will try to atleast put some creativity into my intro 8)

If any of you guys have picked up the new Getaway and read the Kruger article, dont you think that the article sums up why Kruger is so appealing, if you dont have the mag, I will share an excript later tonight :lol:
