How can you win? Since you have all already been so generous in donating to Conservation Support, I can not choose…… So, whoever contacts me first on sandramf@sanparks.org and can be in Kruger from 6-9 November 2009, will join us for an unforgettable weekend.

Tried my luck at 11:55 .
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.

Thank you , I was lucky even though by default , I am very grateful !
I am most excited to be able to attend this event and get into the wilds , as you know that is what really excites me , as I am so used to the exclusivity of wilderness trails and the few other places that I have been so fortunate to experience in KNP !

I was really holding my thumbs when the results were originally due to be announced , so this is the cherry on the cake !
