14 sleeps until we leave the British spring (?) behind and fly to warmer climes and great friends. 26 sleeps for KTP!!!! The waiting-exhaustion has turned to tummy-fluttering excitement! :lol:

Hi All,

This is our first trip to KTP after many to KNP!!

14 - 20 Aug @ Twee Rivieren camping, as I discovered you could swap bookings at other SANParks. So our trip to Satara and Maroela became this KTP trip.

This is a recce sortie as our youngest offspring is 11, so no wilderness camps possible until next year. Nor am I prepared to take our road caravan any further into the park.

Finishing off with 3 nights at Augrabies on the way back.

Can't wait!!!!!!!
Money can't buy you happiness but it can buy you ice cream and that's almost the same!

Hi Tobieo,please put your dates in meets and greets via Jazil and hopefully we'll meet up somewhere for a cold one.We might even be staying in the same camp,check my dates please.
It really is great to meet likeminded people, to sit and enjoy a cold beer and tell each other your experiences in your travels.

Hope to meet you in KTP in October/November.

If it was not for the drink and drive rule we might have been able to share a cold one on the road. I will be at Polentswa while you are at Grootkolk and when I move to Grootkolk you will move south. Hope we meet somewhere on the road, fly the yellow ribbon :naughty:

I did send Jazil my dates tonight
