Quite a few songs remind me of Kruger. Today it is an old Simon and Garfunkel song called Homeward Bound. It reminds me of travelling to the Kruger National Park, not from.

During the floods in Kruger, Bridge over Troubled waters came to mind

We have so many songs that reminds me of our Kruger trips…… But there is one song that stands out as our ‘Kruger song’, Dario G – Sunchyme (Their 1997 hit) :tongue:

Approximately 3km before we reach a Kruger gate we listen to Sunchyme……… then when the song ends, the cd player gets switched of and the windows get rolled down....... :mrgreen:

A song that reminds me of Kruger over this holiday period is "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year". The Kruger veldt is full of “summerness” especially after the rains.

Happy travels to those who will be spending Christmas and New Year in the Kruger.

Today it would probably be Time is Tight that catchy retro instrumental one :D .

Travel safely those who will be visiting Kruger over the Easter holidays or any of the other SA National Parks and enjoy your trip :thumbs_up: .
