My son popped in here at 2pm yesterday afternoon just to say goodbye, they were booked in at Tamboti and thought they'd make the Orpen gate. :shock:
They decided, booked and packed within 30 minutes, impulsive soul he is! :twisted:

Fortunately Mama knows best so I phoned Orpen to arrange a late entry permit, I told them that the kids should be there by 7:30pm.

At 8:45pm I got a call from Jnr., they were at Orpen, the staff were waiting. :D

Thank you to the staff of Orpen Camp and to the gate staff, for being to efficient! :clap: :clap: :clap:
At least I know they are not sleeping outside the gate tonight. :doh: :lol:
