(arrive 6th, bushcamp 7th, Skukuza 8th and depart 9th November 2009

Since Dorothy won’t be able to collect her prize this year (I will try to arrange something for her in 2010), I would like to offer this prize for “A day and night in the bush” to one lucky couple (i.e. 1 couple = 2 people). If you have donated money towards the Conservation Support Project (http://www.sanparks.org/parks/kruger/co ... upport.php and your name appears on the attached list, you are eligible to win :D

What can you win? Dorothy + partner’s spot in the bush with the Ashtons, Goddards and myself from 6-9 November 2009. This includes 3 nights accommodation in Kruger and 1 x fully catered night at Bushcamp (i.e. lunch; dinner; breakfast).

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.

Arrive Friday 6th November 2009 – Hut 6 and 7: Skukuza Research Camp

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 !
