Hi ossendryver, this is very weird but this TR starts in 2009 at pretoriuskop and ends in 2010 at ngwenya lodge. Hard to explain :lol: but this is not one trip, only ngwenya is the TR but pretoriuskop is a key factor :mrgreen:

Episode 1: The Reason I started this trip occured in 2009......

At the end of July ossendryver and I went to kruger together. Now you must know that I do go to kruger every year so I didn't expect this to be any different. Well, I was wrong. :mrgreen: To go with another forum member is AWESOME!!!!! Now it was January,2010. I was clicking around my files looking at pics :whistle: when I came across this:Image and
Image and my lion pics from that trip were endless :D , but those two were the ones I saw.......

To be continued :lol:

Thanks for comments :lol:
Episode 1 part 2 : Remembering those pics, I said to myself, " I need to get more pics like this :lol: ". So now, being the end of january, just like that; I'm going to kruger
:dance: I know you are wondering why this is called the lion TR. But that will come later..... :whistle: We planned everything so quickly and waited anxiously until July. Then it hit me, I'm going to kruger :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: after sleepless nights the day came..............



To be continued :thumbs_up:

Episode 2 : The drive: We packed up the house and drove to get the family. Cousins, aunts, and uncles ect. Now most TR's write and write and write, well I am the same. But have a different style so just READ and READ and READ :lol: :mrgreen: We just drove and drove not making many stops when we finally reached the road to ngwenya :dance: The whole time I had those pics out just to remember :P when suddenly I went up and down and up and down ect...... We had got on to the dreaded ngwenya road :? and while everyone sped past we went 0.001km. :lol: :wink: :lol: :wink: :roll: This was sooooooo "Fun" :( But it was worth it because paradise IS paradise :lol: When you say to a tourist, " Yes, in africa everything is terrible and kruger is terrible, don't go there :lol: " it's just to HIDE ngwenya and keep it to yourself :lol: :lol:

The hides are great at ngwenya and the chalets are great(spelling :? ) anyway I would reccomend taking a monster truck to overcome that road :lol: . The first thing you see when entering is: BIG 5 TERRITORY DO NOT FEED :lol: ( who would try that :whistle: ) A pair of monitors lived right outside and was trying to get at a few ducklings :big_eyes: , so cute but scary. The bully did not succeed and stormed off hungry Image

I will now leave you under the african sky in paradise Image ..............................
