Thank you for the amazing photos. A picture says a thousand wods but actually being there must be very scarey. It must be quite daunting and I think that having the car packed in case you need to move fast is a sensible thing. Travel safe whatever you do!!

Morning all

Thanks for all the wonderful comments, we made it home safe and dry!!! :dance: :dance: :dance:

It was an amazing trip and I could not have asked for a better farewell gift from Kruger (but more of that much much later!!!)

Since this trip was not like any before, I think I'll most probably not write a report from day one to the end, but more share some interesting stuff with you as I get time....... :hmz: :whistle:
