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.

I've been sat in the garden in really warm sunshine reading my Getaway mag. that arrived yesterday. The camping accessories pull-out was useful although the Kruger map lacked a bit of detail.

After reading the Getaway I moved my September booking forward to July. I can't wait to get back in the Park. I am so excited that I am battling to go to sleep. Plus now addicted to GeoWild DSTV Channel.

FYI, I was able to order the digital copy of this issue! No map included that I could find, but it makes for very interesting reading.

I assume the Nhlambanyathi bird hide referred to on S28 (page 34) is actually Nthandanyathi bird hide , or is there another bird hide on S28 ?

Of course it is the Nthandanyathi hide. It's easy to incorrectly spell something as I also see even conflicting spelling of the hide in official SANP references. :wink:

Nthandanyathi here.
And Ntandanyathi on the map on this page here.
And [url]here[/url] it is Nthandanyati.
