Right at the moment - to qualify to join a wilderness trail as a back-up guide and then do several of them.....

Mmmmm... my bucket list would be, having the priviledge of being allowed to track and film a pride of lion in the KNP and not a 3 month project, it has to take years!!.
I am mesmerised by all animals but mostly the big cats . Leopards always evade me, and well the lion - what can I say - I see them most visits to the park, but somehow for me, its just not enough.
I would follow these animals day in and day out just to watch their interaction with each other. I am amazed at the actual LOVE they share, for such huge magnificent beasts, they can become so loving toward each other as my little feline does at home with me.
Just magnificent..... What a life that would be.

Anyone got a job for me in KNP?? I promise total dedication 24hrs round the clock?

For me, to start planning visits to all the other SANParks once my SO has retired, so that we don't have to worry about leave credits anymore! We are already thinking and talking about Kgalagadi early in 2014. :wink:

For me it would be 6 months in KTP and 6 months in KNP :dance: :dance: :dance:

Alright more like 4 months each in KNP and KTP and the other 4 months between all the other reserves in SA.

First to win the lotto :tongue:

I'd love to do something like Scott Ramsay. He's currently completing "A Year in the Wild".

He's a photographer and writer, and during the course of one year will be travelling to 31 of South Africa’s most special nature reserves and national parks. His goal is to photograph the country’s last remaining wild places, and to interview the people who make conservation possible. He issue's regular blogs about his travels accompanied by his phenomenal photos.

He's visiting Kruger at the moment. Nature reserve 28!

I would like to go to all the symphony concerts in Kruger. I know of the one in Letabe, I am not sure if they still have "Baroque in the bush" at Shingwetzi.

Walk all the wilderness trails.

Visit all the parks, at leisure 8)

Get 10/10 for JvR's bird quizz :roll:
