Symptoms: Image

- Swollen eyelids & heavy heart when passing the boundaries of the area known as Kruger Park.
- Bouts of severly debilitating jealousy reading other mites trip reports
- No cure other than repeated visits to above mentioned Kruger Park.

I have been suffering a terrible bout of this awful disease since the end of February,2013. It has been a long and painful illness but luckily I have been given hope in the form of an antidote. In precisely 20 days from today today the end will be in sight. The cure involves extensive and dangerous travel from Amsterdam to Frankfurt and then Johannesburg but I am willing to go to any lengths to find a cure!

So although it may first require a ride to the airport in a Image I am hoping we can upgrade to a Image

and you can all join me on my longest journey yet through KNP, a whole 15 nights and who knows what adventures we will encounter this time!

Looking forward to joining you. I feel much the same way, and I have to wait until the end of September, so must see Kruger through your eyes, and others so that I don't go completely mad before then. So I will sit back with :popcorn: and enjoy your adventure.

Oh dear AndreaB, I can relate 100% to your symptoms. :(

But the next 20 days will fly past within a flash and you will be boarding the plane and on your way 8) .. bush fever symptoms will instantly disappear that is a given. :wink:

Looking forward to your 15 day adventure. :dance:

Safe travels ... :pray:

Waiting this side with loads of :popcorn:

Andrea :gflower: and wishing you a good and speedy recovery.

I do understand that this can be a most debilitating and sadly, chronic illness. I hope that the 15 day medication has an excellent effect.

Watch out for those Cheetah though. :wink:

:popcorn:

I have been told to take my medicine every day, apparently this involves a new wonder cure by the name of Amarula...

So, in honor of the 14 day down countdown and because I can already feel the healing rays beginning to course through my poor old body I am going to allow myself the indulgence of posting a few of my all time favourite photos from the Pleasure-Dome starting with these....

How special to see the leopard with such a little cub. And wonderful other photos, as well.
Hope your trip is good with many lucky sightings.
