Thanx DB. I, for one, will be watching this space! Been in the park when they had the century celebrations and won't miss participating in the competition as we will not be there during the said period.

Just a suggestion, but it would be really nice if these historical pix included the DATE when they were taken, at least the year. They would be far more interesting to me if I knew what year in KNP's history they represented.

Hi Forum Folks

Thanks for all the well-wishes. We are in the process of placing some photographs taken at the first event in Phalaborwa on the site so that you can all have a general idea of these events. Look out for more developments in this regard.

Kind regards

More Kruger celebrations!

And a quote from the link:
“We would like you to join us with our celebration but request that everyone refrains from speeding, littering and maintain the other regulations applicable to every visit to the park,” said the Chairperson of the KNP Birthday Organising Committee, the HOD Public Relations and Communication Mr William Mabasa.
