It all began whilst sitting around a dinner table with a friend.....We were chatting about our passion for wildlife and comparing our amazing sightings seen right around the world. My SO and I started “bragging” about how fantastic Kruger is. How we go back year after year and each time our experience is so different. The bush offers such different moments and memories. Our British friend said “I would love to see Kruger, I have been to Chobe, Masa Mara and other parks but Kruger is still on my bucket list”. I excitedly, of course, replied “LETS GO...We’ll take you and show you around” and so the planning began.

With lots of decisions and choices to be made, we put the pieces of the puzzle together and ended up with the following itinerary.

2 nights in Skukuza
2 nights in Satara area
1 night in Lower Sabie
1 night in Pretoriuskop

We were ready to Bundu bash with a Brit in Kruger.

SurfCindy, just love the title of your TR. :dance:

...and so it all began. I guess, somewhere in between is a bush braai :hmz: - "Bundu Bashing and a Bush Braai with a Brit" :D :D :D
Sounds like a nice game to play to add more "B's" to the title... :dance:

I am looking so forward to your experiences and my place been booked. :clap: :thumbs_up:
My :popcorn: is read and as it is winter in Cape town, got enough :lotsocoffee: stocked to not to miss an episode. :D
