While reading a trip report and looking at photos and sharing the writers experiences you actually feel like you are also experiencing what they are, after a trip report is finished I get the same longing feeling for the Kruger BUT then I move onto the next trip report and experience another Kruger trip. My favourite time of the day to read trip reports is first thing in the morning when the other 2 are still sleeping. I make a cup of tea and sit in front of the computer and go into my own little Kruger world. I have gained tons of knowledge about the park through reading trip reports, thank you to all the writers, :k :k :gflower: :gflower:

:thumbs_up: Well said, thank you everyone

Wellllllll.......... It's very nice to hear and read that at least a few mites are reading the Tales :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I like to write TR's ... I must say that preparing a Tale / Story is like experience the sightings again so I am the first one who benefits :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

Comments are very welcome and appreciated and looking at the views I know many do read the stories or just looking at the pics. 24 hours today is still the same 24 hours we had 10 years ago but ..... it just feels different.... it feels like time is really flying......

So... Try this: Put away your smart phones one evening per week... Turn on your laptop, pc or tablet and just make one choice that evening (Sanparks) enjoy the forums and 3 hours later you go to bed with a very happy feeling.... :rtm: :rtm:

This is like I do when I" have to" ID some possible tuskers for lots of mites.

Soooooo....... Enjoy reading, watching, looking , laughing etc .....

Thanks to all who enjoy the TR Stories , very much appreciated ! :clap: :clap:

For me, the trip reports are the heart of the forum.

I am English speaking, I do not have to think of words.

I thank all those who write in a language not of their own.

From me a very BIG thank you for all the trip reports. There is not a day that goes by without all of you contributing to my well being :k Travel tales have become my "Happy place" whenever my work upsets me, I sneak onto the forum, take a deep breath and smell the thatch, hear the birds, and know that "I will be back "
Thank you to all who write, who comment and enjoy :gflower:

Keep them coming!!!


I will not survive if I have to live without reading trip reports! As was said by so many 'mites so many times, it brings a Park to me if I cannot be in a Park! :dance: :dance:
