Returned on Friday (29 April 2011) and I wish it was a week ago sitting in Balule! :( :tongue:

It was a super get together and we should do it again. I have also enjoyed meeting old faces again as well as meeting new faces! :thumbs_up:

A special thanks to Lowveldboy for making this a success as well as the mites behind the scenes, like Bert and Bunnyhugger! :clap: :clap:

Very sad was the news from Geocor about PetraJ's accident...I'm glad you and the boys are doing OK...you are still in our prayers! :thumbs_up:

Herewith a few photos of our official clean-up:

On our way to the river we came across this mom and her LO:

On the Olifants bridge:

The guys from SANParks escorting us and doing a great job:

Off the truck and down to the river:

Sprocky hard at work wearing his special Shark shirt for the dirty job! :lol: :lol:

Mighty Mites hard at work:

A view of the Olifants river:

Thanks again it was really a great experience! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Well, I will be back at Balule tomorrow with Lienca, :twisted: I lost something that I have to go search for. :tongue: :tongue:


There is strong evidence to support a rumour that a clean-up crew recently moved through the area and cleaned up all the junk. :tongue:

Conservation is not an option.
It's imperative.

Leave KNP alone. Go build a hotel someplace else. Reserves are for the preservation of wildlife.

I think I should drop this goodie-two-shoes act, don't you agree? :huh: :rtm: :twisted: :tongue:

To make up for not being there this year, I will accept BB30"s nomination,and do the baby-sitting next year!

Yah, it does not suit you even if I am sure that you did it to let the Oom and Sprocky go. It's just like you :roll:

A priviledge to be out there on foot - wish I could be there with just 2 silent guards .
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.
