Let me hop on board to make sure I don't miss what I missed in the park. :lol:
Really curious to learn whether you were successful in your mission or not. :whistle:


I have a feeling that you did not really miss that much :)

Definitely on board for this! :dance:

The bird baths have come to be a major attraction at Grootkolk over recent years, so it was very disappointing to hear about this new rule. :( But, I have a feeling the rest of your trip more than made up for this disappointment. :wink:


trust that feeling... :D

Looking forward to the Trip Report! 8)

I am disappointed....
Bird Baths are no longer allowed at Grootkolk....

The most Bees we had was in the kitchen sink, so am I not allowed to do the dishes any more as well ?! :hmz:

I was so much looking forward to this, as it always is a highlight for us when we stay in the camp and not going for a drive....

But, apart from that I am ready :popcorn:


you are allowed to do the dishes. But there is a cork in the tap which has to go back when you are finished and you have to wipe dry the sink. :?

Thank you for your replies and welcome on board Lionspoon, Timbits, MM, TT, wanderw, KDU, Barry, kyknetta, Billy, Hilda, COS, Philip, Pumbaa, forestgump, Carol, Riaanf31 and Jeanni. :gflower:

In my opinion we had a wonderful trip and I hope this trip report can answer your expectations. In case, you don’t like cats... :hmz:

Up to now I only told you what we did not see. Thus, while I am still busy sorting the 9000 pics, I like to give you an idea of what we saw with some animals expressing their opinion of us
