Hi, excellent idea!

Me and my SO "Geo of Cor" would love to be there. Did you decide on the dates yet?
:huh: Dec 2010 after the 16th, or the Easter weekend sounds nice as well. :thumbs_up:

I have e-ailed Zaks to try and get some support for this venture.

Not sure yet why I'm being ignored.

I think Easter 2011 gives us enough time to plan and get the whole camp booked. I can't do December.

Maybe she's on leave? Its still the silly season, even if a lot of people went back to work today many only go back next week

E-Mailed Zaks months ago. If she has been on leave for that long then I def want to work for SANPARKS.

Got a PM from Bert and he has kindly offered his help with this.

Anyone got any ideas as to how we can use it as a fund raiser or should we just do a campout / forum get together and have a ball? We have just over a year to plan this so there's plenty time to get bookings done and all that stuff.

When planning, keep Cricket @ Skukuza in mind too. This is usually held mid March at Skukuza.

Perhaps a combined visit for some. Just an idea.

Deebs, you only need 22 people to play a game of cricket. And it's a long drive from Balule to Skuks so it may encourage speeding and we wouldn't want to be guilty of encouraging any bad behaviour. :tongue:

That was one of my first concerns with something of this nature ( the possible conflict with the annual cricket pilgrimage.)

Thing is for me to get to KNP (even though I live close by) it needs to be a long weekend. Three days is the minimum with four days being a more ideal time to visit. But then again, being paradise, one ideally needs far longer. 8)

I agree with BH. My minimum is 4 nights, but I could make an exception.

BH, as I've voiced before, I would like to combine it with an (optional) clean up operation.

That sounds like a great plan Josh.

Last time I was in the park, there was a lot of litter at Nwamanzi lookout point close to Olifants.

Bert, what can you organise for us? There must be a few other places where we can go out and clean up around the general area of Balule/ Olifants / Satara.

We can get a guided walk with ranger protection without havng to fork out huge sums of ZAR all in the prectext of operation cleanup. :tongue:
