Interesting to note that the bee-eater photo was made by one of the members of our "sister forum", ODP!

After reading Bekke's post I also remembered why I avoid Getaway. I will however, have a look and then make up my own mind as to whether it is worth it. Ag but us peasants can also dream, can't we? :lol: :roll:

Well I read my copy today and I will read it over and over. Anything on Kruger is worth reading and on the subject of those expensive places ...well I wouldn't want to stay there anyway ..thats not Kruger and I didn't give them a glance!!

Based on this info, I bought the new Getaway. Thanks, I now remember why I do not buy it anymore :twisted: Instead of an article to cover the wonderfull park, 4 people listed their sponsored best-lists. I mean, the majority of the info are for lodges in excess of R2500 per person! And then they have the cheek to include a full page on their SPONSORED brand new vehicles! Maybe they should start living like average South Africans!!!

Having bought the June issue of above , I can only fully agree with Bekke . Exactly my reasons for stopping reading it a few years ago .

Is there any kind soul who would be prepared to send a copy of the June getaway magazine (or just the relevant feature)to me in the UK? I'll gladly refund you and once I have read it I'll circulate it amongst the other UK forumites.

Rayb, I will send you my copy , it has been paged through once . I will as a favour also enclose a copy of Go! (unless you are an ex South African who speaks afrikaans , let me know and I will send Weg!) , the english version of an excellent afrikaans outdoors magazine called Weg! , which tells it like it is , very few sponsored articles , in my opinion more up the real outdoor lovers street ! It is probably most suited to someone with an understanding of afrikaans -down to earth- South African culture , no exuberantly priced lodges etc .
pm me your name and postal address .

I subscribe to Getaway and it's my moment to dream.
I think it's a magazine with quite a varied target audience and it's often difficult to keep everyone satisfied.
I do see it as a "generalist", rather than a "specialist" publication.

I enjoyed the Kruger articles, just because I enjoy anything on Kruger. The editorial was outstanding. I find that Getaway's editorials are pertinent, thought provoking and aimed at changing our attitudes towards nature in general.

@ndloti, sorry I've only just seen your post. Thanks very much for the offer but Jakkalbassie has already sent two copies one for me and one for John and Poppy.

I see there is an online version of the magazine too, but it still has the March issue as the "current issue". :(

You can order e-version back-issues, though, so I'll have to check on this in a few months. I'd gladly purchase an annual online subscription, if the e-version came out at the same time as the print version.

I also very seldom buy this magazine, but I must say that this last issue was well worth the money I paid for it. :D

Sorry guys, I didn't see this before I left or I would have brought some copies back with me.

Getaway is one of my favourite mags and I always look out for it when I'm in SA. This edition was not a disappointment and had a great article on the Duke Tusk Episode and some really useful information on KNP and the Transfrontier Park. It's always interesting to read other people's opinions and to have a glimpse of alternatives so the info on the lodges was informative.
