We keep making each trip just a little bit longer. We have the dreaded Kruger disease that means we rarely go on any holiday other than Kruger, and spend the time in between trips just dreaming of all things Kruger. Our last trip was 30 something days and that still was not enough. Our upcoming trip (April/May 2013) will be 42 days and I am certain that that will not be enough.

We always start in the south (Biyamiti) and work our way north, then back down to the south. We try and hit every hide and picnic spot on each trip.

I can not wait!!!!

Kruger is the place that sticks in ones heart forever - I am lucky enough to live twenty minutes away, so we go usually once a week. Does this count? :-)

All the best,
Jacqui

Ossy, I do find that sightings take another nature when in Kruger such a period. No longer do you search for the Big5, no longer you get exited only about the Lion in the road. You start to enjoy nature to the fullest, start making mental notes of animal behaviour, start looking for small stuff, and the big stuff just falls in place. Really different to a short visit. :thumbs_up:
