Hi Flutterby
Have just picked up your March 2010 TR. Thanks you so much for that. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
What wonderful sightings, and you really did so well with your new camera. :dance: :dance:
I also have a real wariness of charging elephants, and though I love to see wildlife programmes about them, I can't wait to drive on when we meet them in the flesh!! Silly I know, but there's none so queer as folk!!!!
Really looking forward to your next TR Sept/Oct.
We have to wait till December for our next trip. :cry: :cry: :cry:
Happy viewing. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :dance: :dance:

Imagine if we could compile a SANparks storybook of everyone's TR's for each year :hmz:


Great idea. Imagine a book that contains 365 days of trip reports - take the best trip report done on 1 Jan (just the day) and do so for everyday with photo's and script. It could also be across all Sanparks. I'd buy it!
Good luck with compilation though! :tongue:

I agree 100% with you Rooies! I am hooked on trip reports, and don't miss a single one on purpose! :dance: :dance:

Thanks to everybody that allows us to "ride" along on their holiday. It's like being in the bush everyday.

Must agree with Rooies :D . Sharing trips with 'mites are very important due to the fact that we are all learning through these reports and it does in most instances guide 'mites when choosing ones next destination :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: .

Thanks from my side as well to all the writers on the forums, it is really appreciated :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: .
Always be humble and understanding

We have really been spoiled by the trip reports. Some entertain, some provide a visual delight, many do both.

I appreciate each and every contribution. I am particularly grateful towards those whose mother tongue is not English. I cannot imagine the courage it takes.

I must also include my thanks to all who take the time to do a TR. I know how much work is put into these tales and it is very much appreciated. :clap:

I am lucky enough to go to KNP every alternate year with my wonderful in-laws (Elsa & Klystron) and so therefore I thoroughly enjoy reading other mites TR's. It makes the time in between more bearable.

I wish there was a button (like on facebook) to "like" a photo as there are so many fantastic photo's in these TR's.
