This is a topic very close to my heart. I'm also a South African living very far away from home and miss South Africa everyday. I can't help myself looking at pictures of our holiday's there every time I put on my laptop.

This picture was taken on our last visit in Biyamiti and it gives me goosebumps when I look at it. Dreaming of sitting next to the fire and absorbing all the sounds and smells all around me. Pure bliss. :dance:

Oh how I miss Kruger right now :( ... Thanks for all your photo's, very nice :clap:

I am not South African, but after our first visit to South Africa last year, I think of Africa daily. We return in 19 days, and I can't wait. On our visit last year I think I was bitten by a bug, and now feel I have Africa flowing through my veins.
We started planning this trip before we left South Africa on our last trip.
It was truly love at first sight for both of us, and we plan to return many times in the future. This was the first Veld sunset we experienced in South Africa, range fires were burning in the area, which made for spectacular sunsets.

Looks like the H14 crossing over the Letaba KV - but I've been known to get these things terribly wrong. :cry:

This is what sits on a 1.2m long canvas above the bed.

I cannot describe how much I looked forward to visiting this magic place again this past June. But unfortunately due to a sick grandson we had to rush from Punda Maria to Tzaneen where he spent 2 nights in the hospital. Instead of enjoying the tranquility of Klopperfontein, I walked the streets of Tzaneen.

Great topic - indeed one can't go back enough to SA, but in between trips it's only the pictues that keep the dream alive.

This one is from my recent trip to KTP and features on my desktop. I especially love the effect of B& on this early morning picture.

I had a dream.......

I saw the day ending, & heared the francolins calling

I had a dream
- where I heared the first call of a nightjar

I had a dream
-sitting in my favorite chair, in front of the restaurant

I had a dream
-where I heared the elephant breaking some brances close to the fench

I had a dream
-where the sun finally gave in, losing it's battle in a majestic array of colours

I had a dream, where I could sit there forever, where the sunset stalled and the colours froze. I had a dream where the sounds of the scops owls, the crickets, and the smell of thatch will stay forever.

If it only wasn't a dream.......

If nobody has seen it for themselfs they can't believe or understand the sunsets that I miss so much.

Here's my 5 cents

Just going through my pics, withdrawal symptoms getting bad again. :roll:
Thought I'd share this one with you all, taken in the early morning light on the S28 in June this year.
