Thank you every one. I’m really excited about this. Another reason to visit Kruger. Already looking forward to spend a day in the live off Sanparks personnel. Thank you Sanparks for this opportunity. I know that our donations will help to create even better parks.

Congratulation to all the other winners.

I see they talk about Skukuza research camp!! Is that the normal Skukuza camp or is it another camp that only the game rangers use and if so where is it?

I will find out for sure exactly where it is for you Alf, but I know for sure it is not in the main camp, but obviously very close.

Research camp is situated between the road from the staff village to Skukuza reception (this road leads left from just below reception , before the library) and the H 11 . A mouthfull , but actually on the left just before the main junction outside Skukuza when approaching from Kruger gate .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Afraid I can't help you on that matter , Alf , you lucky soul , what bliss to stay in the Skukuza area without being inside the zoo !
I am sure they will keep you updated closer to the time !!!

Alf, that road also leads to the staff village ... there are 400 odd staff houses there, so you could be seeing those on google too.
