Hi all

I am sorry if I begin my TR to early but I can simply not wait any longer :wall: :redface: .
Let me start with the booking off this trip, we decided (ok I decided) we will visit paradise in Sept 2010. This was end off July 2009.
I made my booking on 1 Oct 2009 for 9 nights in Berg En Dal, then the fun started,I changed it several times, let me explain, a while later I thought since SO said I can go earlier I will book for 1 night in Croc Bridge, so I did but I was not happy with that so I changed it to 3 nights. Think that would make me happy? wrong! :roll: ,so I booked 5 nights at Satara and one more at Berg en Dal, think that was the end? :hmz: ,wrong again in late July 2010 I booked 3 more nights at Skukuza :slap: ,I should be happy now :tongue: ,wrong again, I changed my booking from Skukuza to Shingwedzi on 20 Aug and booked 1 night in Phalla as stop over before we enter KNP. Now my schedule lookes like this: 11 Sept-Phalla, 12 - 15 Sept - Shingwedzi, 15 -18 Sept - Croccodile Bride, 18 - 23 Sept - Satara and 23 - 3 Oct Berg en Dal. :dance: What do you think will it stay this way? answer YES,....... I dont have any Leave days left :whistle: .

Well me and my cousin (Tommie jnr) will leave Boksburg on 11 Sept at 06:00, by the way Tommie has never been in Knp :big_eyes: :huh: .I will have 3 yellow ribbons to simbolise my 2 daughters(Bookworm and Tataruka) an me.

SO and kids will join us on the 23 rd Sept.

Ok, all for now, will write again :thumbs_up: :popcorn:

Hi everybody.

My dad an cousin got up very early this morning to pack the last few things before they were on thier way, leaving us behind to join them in two weeks.

At about 12:30pm they got to Phalaborwa campsite where they will spend the night. They went for a quick drive in KNP. This is what they saw: some giraffes, a few elephants, some warthog and about 1 km from Sable Hide they saw lions. I'm not sure how many lions they saw. But seeing 2 of the big 5 in the first day, is great! :thumbs_up: :cam:
