Hello Everyone!! :hello:

I am a new forumite and have been lurking in the background and reading some of the threads. I am loving the sharing process and the wonderful manner in which everyone interacts. It is quite addictive once you get into the forum threads and I am loving it and can't get enough. I appreciate all the photos and knowledge and the TR's that are posted. It helps to make the absence from the park bearable.

I live in Johannesburg and try to visit KNP at least 3 times a year - often with visitors (local and foreign) and on other occasions with just my SO who is extremely patient with me and drives us all over the show - again and again and again.

Looking forward to reading and learning more!

Lesley

Hi,

I'm new here and want to introduce myself.

My husband and me have been to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana several times in the last years and already plan our new trip to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in November. Actually we booked our flights this morning. :)

I'm German and english is not my native language, so pls. excuse possible grammar and typing errors. :redface:

My hobby is photographing nature, especially birds and insects.

Best Regards
Ulrike
