I must really offer my sincere apologies for the delay in my trip report! :gflower:

To those who don't already know, I hurt my knee while on holiday and now have had to have surgery to repair a torn cartilage and do a lot of "housework" inside the joint which has resulted in rather a painful past 10 days.
I still can't really sit at the computer for long spells, been barely walking, but it is starting to get easier and I am sure it won't be long now before I can get right down to it. :thumbs_up:

All good things come to those who wait, but the most important thing is that you get better first.

Oh Elsa I am so sorry to hear about your knee - Hopefully it is not the same leg on which you once hurt your ankle :big_eyes: Great to hear that you are feeling a bit better now :thumbs_up:

Thanks once again for all the good wishes and also the understanding with the delay in this report! :gflower:
The knee is coming along slowly but clearly going to take longer to get back to normal than I anticipated.
Patience, where are you? :roll:

So I have decided I have delayed this long enough and I am going to proceed slowly, but surely! :wink:

Just a recap since it feels like sooo long ago that Klystron, Jock, Scotty & fam and myself set off for the long drive up the KZN north coast, through Swaziland and headed for our much anticipated time in a very special place in the world that we are so privileged to be able to visit regularly.

The first 2 weeks were to be spent at our timeshare lodge on the banks of the Crocodile river overlooking the Kruger Park, doing frequent trips into the park on a daily basis and then the last week staying in the park.
Scotty and fam were only able to stay for the first week owing to having little ones at school.

24th May

Arriving, checking in, unpacking the car done, we all rush to the front veranda to see what is waiting for us and don't have to wait long for the first visitors to arrive.

And then as it does in Africa, suddenly the dusk is upon us and the sun sinks into the trees in the park.

An Egyptian Goose had joined us in the fast approaching darkness and made a nice pic and Jock got all creative!

and the first stars appear.

and that is the end of the first day but lots more to follow! :thumbs_up:
