I keep all my maps and other paperwork on Kruger in a
paper wastebag with the green lionlogo.

I might have the oldest paper wastebag still in one piece
From 1999.

I have a lower sabie menu from 1973. It was the dinner menu and it cost R1.25 for a 5 course dinner. I will scan it and post it ASAP.

I have a beige fleece top with khakie green trim which is my favourite winter wear. My family say alsorts of disparaging things about it but when my back is turned they queue to "borrow" it.

Also our cap and hat from Admin got us a lot of attention from staff and rangers on our trip last week! That will be making a return.

My 4 year old has a cap with a flap on the neck (with ellie on front) and that is her best park attire!

Honorary ranger with small flag on car - always respected them dont see them anymore.

Saw one last year at Nhlanguleni - no flag anymore just a magnetic sticker on the front doors of the kombi. First H Ranger I've seen in a long time.

They still do it at Satara as well. Always make a point of walking to the shops to see this

Wildlife movie at night - are they still doing this.

Last one we watched was a Skukuza. I know they also advertise movies at Letaba. They list them on the board at the Elephant museum.

Remember that they had holiday entertainment for the kids at Skukuza years back. Clowns, magicians, ventriloquist etc. Don't know if the camps still do this.

You could get Coke in the small bottles.
Fires at Tshokwane to make your breakfats with, no gas braais.
Bull elephant that regularly visited Tshokwane
Huge kettles with boiling water at most camps.
They had fires going in most camps where you could collect coals to braai.

The shops are a foreigner's delight, huge range of curios and for us South African's many of the items are very expensive. We used to be satisfied with the teaspoons with a camp logo on or a lovely mug, T-shirts which were reasonably priced. Kids always came home with a souvenier, not to-day, too expensive

I believe that they stopped the fires at Tshokwane and other places due to the fact that they were using up too much firewood. Seems reasonable to me, although fires were nicer than gas braais, but if it saves the ecology, then I understand.

Do I have the reason for no more fires correct anyone?

I still have an impala skin and a letter opener with the tooth of a warthog I bought as souvenirs at a fair price and when I miss the wild I touch them, but nowadays the souvenirs are either to expensive or made in Hong Kong.

I keep adding to my collection.... last trip I bought book marks.

I also received a really cool keyring for donating to Cybertracker - it is in the shape of Kruger with the SANParks logo on it. Will take a pic soon and post here.

DinkyBird, I also got the cool keyring together with a letter sincerely thanking me for the donation. I've started collecting keyrings since way back when. Would purchase one whenever I visit a special place as a reminder of that visit. Sometimes not that easy to get a suitable keyring that is "linked" closely enough with the specific place, but really not the case with this one, will get a special place in my collection.

All I can so is thank SANPARKS - you really made my day with this small token of appreciation.
