Back again

Unread postby roaneric » Sun Jan 25, 2015 2:41 pm

Hi there dear forumites Image

I don't know if any of you can still remember me, for I have been away for quite a while now.Image

There's been a lot of changes in my life sins but I'm back again. June it will be almost 2 years sins the last time we visited Kruger.Image
So we had to do something about that and in 90 days we will be in paradise again.Image We will be staying 1 night at Balule, 2 nights in Shingwedzi, 3 nights in Shimuwini, 1 night at Sable hide (our very first time) and 2 nights at Tamboti. Its still a long wait and that's why I decided to start my TR and share a photo a day of our last few visits to Kruger.

So here we go. Image

Day 90

I am fairly new, but know of you and have found your thread on the Kruger accommodation invaluable when visiting camps that are not so familiar or just wanting to see what alternative accommodation there is going.

Now its your turn and I am thrilled for you and will definitely be around to help you count down the 90 days.

We can never, ever, forget you. For eg, you have no idea how often your amazing topics of the accommodation in Kruger are referred to and used to plan trips by folk all over the world! :clap: :clap:

90 days will fly by if you spend them with us :D

Aah thanks you guys. It's my pleasureImage

I'm so glad people benefit from the accommodations thread. I want to upgrade it a bit with a few video clips of the views of some units. I haven't figure out how yet, so suggestions is welcome. (I always think video clips shows more atmosphere than a photo.)Image

Thanks so much Liz. Missed you guys. Glad to be back. :k

Grantmissy, I think its great camps too. :dance: We had a booking for July in the south, but heard that my husband can't get off work because its peak season here in the Netherlands. So we quickly had to change it to April/May and had to take what's available. But I'm happy, we always loved the north. So much diversity in scenery and quiet. Just what we need. :wink:
