I remember in the old days you could buy slides (they were the big hit back then) of animal sightings etc. in the Kruger at any of the camp shops.

My folks took many photos. I will have to investigate where they are. Would love to share them here.... If they've been turfed, I'm going to be :evil:

Hi All

Anyone got any old pics of the Pafuri area in the 60's and 70's? In particular the original fever tree forest!

Cheers

Pafuri picnic spot , bad quality best I can offer from circa 1985/7 .
Will look for some of fever tree forest area , but probably are not good quality .

Hi all

My fiancés folks moved recently from Benoni to Hoedspruit to semi-retire and be closer to the bush.

After sorting through things to take with them or dump, I came across a box of slides on the “to dump” pile.
I spent a few days scanning all the slides onto a hard drive and came across many old photos the Kilians had taken of Kruger, the animals and the camps from the late 1960’s onwards.

They are huge “Krugernites” and spent many holidays in the park over the past 40 years so there are some lovely photos of Kruger past.

I even came across one of my fiancés 1st trip to Kruger at only a couple of months old. :lol:

Enjoy and I promise to post some more when I get a gap. :popcorn:

Quick quiz: looking at picture 4 above, what did they use as road markers/directional signs before the ones in the picture?


If I remember correctly it was black and white markers set on poles, often pushed over by elephants!
I will have a look through our old photos too!

Leigh I have photos from 1976, 1978, 1979, and 1981, but they are conventional snaps taken on an old camera. Sadly my technical knowledge is zilch, so wouldn't even begin to know how to get them on my pc and post them here!!!!! :redface: :redface: :redface:
