What time are you going in? I will keep a lookout for 3 cars in YR's. I will be in a white Ford Ranger with a very faded YR on my aerial.

My Yellow ribbon is the frill from a dress :D The most awful gaudy dress I saw in a charity shop! It has a silver thread running trough it and stayed tied on the mirror all the time we were in KNP

We were in Kruger 6-12 April. We met up with Peregrine Falcon and SO, as we had both checked Jazil's list. We saw Eco-Junkie at the Malelane Gate, but I wasn't sure - so I took out my YR to put on the mirrors, and she immediately recognised it. It's a great way to break the ice!

We only had one other sighting which was another car passing us in the opposit direction.

We're hoping next trip we'll see more. But first it's flying the ribbon in GGHNP.

There'll be at least 1 more trip to Kruger in 2010. But this time we're camping! We bought a tent this weekend :D

Hi all,
Spent eight days in Kruger - April 18-26th and had my yellow ribbon displayed. It was great to look for them. I had one couple stop me and visit at a "rest stop." She said she never posts, but reads everything that there is to read! At another camp (Letaba I think) I saw a ribbon on a car - tried to find someone, but didn't succeed. I left my business card on the windshield - hope to hear from whoever it was. I had a couple of people at other camps identify themselves - Marissa and Horace? Raymond at Lower Sabie talked to me and I found Martie, too. However, was only there two days and didn't get to do anything with her.... Boo hoo. There were 12 of us from the USA together. I was in the back of the van once and I thought my driver said, "here is a foreigner." (rather than a forum member! I don't post much, but have been reading this blog off and on for several years...... My first trip to Kruger was about 15 years ago - never imagined I would be back. I went with another group of 12 three years ago. Thought I would never make it back. WOW - did it again this year.... Now, I never say "never." Would love to return if it weren't for the long flight. On our way home we were up over 48 hours from the time we left out hotel until we hit our bed here in Texas.... I am still jet lagging, but already longing to return. Had a GREAT trip. However, I think I read the rule that one must see all of the BIG FIVE and if one does not - must return! We missed the illusive leopard. We had seen one on our trip three years ago, so I have seen them all, but I think the rule should be that each time you must spot them or return!!
We stayed at Skukuza, Letaba, Lower Sabie, and Olifants. Had planned to stay at Crocodile Bridge and exit the bridge, but it was flooded. Luckily, our flight from Nelspruit was not until 11:30 AM, so we made it in time....
Hope to find a few other subjects to post.
Do use those yellow ribbons! They make for great "sightings!!"
Linda

I have had some wonderful "yellow ribbon" sightings. :D I have had to improvise on a couple of occasions when I have left my "yellow ribbon" at home.

For those who enter Punda and realise that they have forgotten their ribbon, there is a little fabric shop in a smallish shopping centre about 10kms before Punda Gate. It is on the left hand side of the road. Best selection of "yellow ribbon" that I have ever seen. 8)

I got mine (and Red Ribbon for Stiffnecks) from a shop in Bloemfontein. Across the road from Mimosa Mall. Very good selection too!
