You know you need another Kruger holidaday when....

Unread postby Rooies » Sat Oct 11, 2014 7:40 am

I am sure that we all have come to a stage when we had enough of everyday life.......when everything starts to irritate you, when you can't cope anymore like;
When you start screaming at the secretary, :rtm:
When she hands in her letter of resignation, :shock:
You throw a cricket ball at the dog when he barks to loud, :shock:
You look for a baseball bat to clobber the next taxi driver you encounter :naughty: and
You are basically gatvol for work. :wall:

Then it's time to break open your piggy banks, pawn the TV, take out a second mortgage on the house and head for Kruger. :D :D :thumbs_up:

That all sounds suspiciously familiar, Rooies :lol: :lol:
The simple rule to follow with all animals is one of respect.

Rooies, how can you do that to your blood pressure :shock:

The answer to the question here is simple!

You know you need another Kruger holidaday when.... when you drive out the park gates to head home after a visit!

DB you have hit the nail on the head!

I usually feel a pang when leaving the Park and the next day plot, plan and book another trip. Sometimes the next trip is to another SANPark, but usually another Kruger trip.

When you manage to replace the smell of Gauteng after the rain has fallen with the smell of the Kruger veldt after a thunderstorm ….
