Jeez but it's difficult to fit all the "must-haves" into a five item list :hmz:

1. Binoculars
2. Booking confirmation letter
3. Cash & bank cards
4. Cellphone & charger
5. Comfy pillow

I've decided the camera is only item no. 6 ... as one can always enjoy the park without taking :cam: of everything :lol:

Ok not Kruger but Mapungubwe but boils down to the same.

1. Note book with writing stick (pen or pencil) to write down the stuff I know I will forget bird list animal list groceries list, worst ever to drive 80km to Musina and 80 km back to remember you forgot something as you pull in to the camp. I have all my telephone number inside the front cover reception, emergancy numbers ect.

2. Tooth brush (no shops at Map to quickly buy one)

3. Wet wipes ,3 llittle kids in the car and one big one (hubby)

4. Hubbies tool box he will leave beer at home if we don't have space but that big blue toolbox will go in.

5. Fluffy (old style cloth nappy) great for everything from sun shade on the window to first-aid to cool compress in the heat.

Mommy things....... maybe in 18 years I will be back to the usual stuff like beer, amarula and wine bottle opener.

As we can safely assume (as the OP stated) that we will all remember to pack the "standard" items (booze, food, coolers, phone chargers etc), and if you take into consideration the type of accommodation that you have (with/without kitchen) and plan accordingly; there are only a few items that we will always remember to take along:

Sharp knife

Fire tongs (for moving wood around and picking up meat that I drop into the coals)

A bundle of hardwood kindling (the firewood in the park often consists of quite large pieces of wood and I do not want to transport an axe).

Headlamps (so I can find my wine glass next to the fire)

Cafetiere for filter coffee in the mornings.

(We also have a "Kruger box" that we take along (permanently stocked) with plastic plates/mugs, camping cutlery, a small pot, the "skottel" , a gas bottle and a selection of spices and salt. Because you never know....)
