The wonderful staff of Orpen Camp!!

My son popped in here at 2pm yesterday afternoon just to say goodbye, they were booked in at Tamboti and thought they'd make the Orpen gate. :shock:
They decided, booked and packed within 30 minutes, impulsive soul he is! :twisted:

Fortunately Mama knows best so I phoned Orpen to arrange a late entry permit, I told them that the kids should be there by 7:30pm.

At 8:45pm I got a call from Jnr., they were at Orpen, the staff were waiting. :D

Thank you to the staff of Orpen Camp and to the gate staff, for being to efficient! :clap: :clap: :clap:
At least I know they are not sleeping outside the gate tonight. :doh: :lol:
