Some time back in the 1980s I bought a piece of curtain/beadspread fabric at the shop at Lower Sabie, the brown one with impala lilies and birds on that used to be in every room. I think it has the Sanparks logo on too. :D I must make something from it and use it.

the best souvenir were mini elephants with their trunks up, but they were stolen.

Esp the kill outside the Skukuza gate in 1994 as we checked out and was on our way back to Jozi. Lion dropped right next to our car waiting..... and waiting.... April heat with closed windows and no aircon = bad idea

So, at the moment, all my souvenirs that really mean something to me are my memories of all the trips we went on with my dad until his passing in 1994.

I am going to shop till I drop next year to get some that are awesome. :dance:

:pray: the costs wont cost more than that of a funeral service :lol:

My best souvenir was seeing a pack of Wild Dogs that I had to wait 28 years to see.

A sausage from a sausage tree picked up from the parking lot at Shingwedzi 10 years ago.
I brought it home and put it in a pot where it eventually sprouted and now I have 5 bonsai sausage trees.

In 1982 I bought an impala skin wallet that was my pride and joy for many years afterward.
Sadly I lost it years later and till now have never seen them in the parks shops again.

Now I'm not talking about the expensive kind just a plain old impala skin wallet. Whenever we go to the park shops I still hope to find one somewhere

Not sure that it qualifies for the "favourite" tag, but I recently rediscovered a "hunting knife" that I bought as a teenager in the park. This must have been around 1971/72. This knife or dagger had a handle made from an Impala hoof. Sadly, the hair on the hoof has since largely been shed, but the hoof is still intact, as is the blade and the leather sheath.
Finding this item again really triggered a whole lot of memories!

I have one of those old cloth Kruger maps exactly like the one Freda has pictured here.
It hangs right next to my computer and I use it as reference when reading about various places on the forum.
I am really not sure how old it is but is in very good condition.
