Fate decided the naming of this TR
This trip was to be special in that I was taking a friend to rediscover his love of nature. The most amazing discovery was that he owned two weeks timeshare at Ngwenya and had never been there, so naturally this had to be utilised :lol:  Might not be Kruger, but heck it is close enough  :dance:
So please fasten the seatbelts, bring along the popcorn and enjoy the ride.
The Kruger Mobile was packed to overflowing, the yellow ribbon ready, and the Amarula chilling.

Saturday am and I arrived promptly at 9am to collect him, and he had a rotten cold.
Big mouth says “No problem, I will have you well within 48 hours, and I am not afraid of any germs”.......

“Unseen in the background, Fate was quietly slipping lead into the boxing-glove.”

The very first sunset from our deck

Nkulu, I am on the bus, looking forward to the trip and Isinkwe looks like you have all your tests done and the BAD Krugeritis should be well and truly sorted by the end of our trip. :dance:

Thank goodness you are clear of the bug Matty. We best all get tested. :D

I'm intrigued by the broken ribs part, nkulu, I must admit. Popcorn and beer with me, and I'm firmly on this bus!!

What a beautiful photo to start your TR, Nkulu. Looking forward to reading about it but I'm sorry to hear that you are both worse off after your holiday. Get better soon.
