Re: Chat in camp

I did go out....and got wet, but fortunately the shower was short-lived. Picked up a few bits and bobs and home to find both kitties in and guarding the house for me.

It is still grey and spits and spots of rain keep falling. Apparently wind will pick up again later on too.... I'm staying in now!

Re: Shopping en route to Kruger.

Elsa is quite right..... Just turn to the right as you come out of international arrivals and go to the Vodaphone shop and they will sort you out very quickly and efficiently.

Re: Tipping

This comment was posted in response to a query re using foreign exchange if no rands available for tipping. Apologies if it causes confusion! You can, but really not a good idea. The reason is that often the guides will need to find someone to change the dollars for them, and they get ripped off wit...

Re: Advanced Day visitor Permit info

Just a thought....... When I was doing gate duty at Malelane we would regard bookings at the Golf Club or airport as bookings in the park which therefore had the same status as overnight bookings or game drive bookings. So it may not be necessary to make a pre-booking? Worth checking on this. And if...

Malelane is too small to have those yet!

Sometimes the Spar has camping chairs etc, they usually have cool boxes.

Re: Shopping en route to Kruger.

When I was there Midas and BuCo both had small camping equipment areas. They were on the right hand side of the road on the park side of the Pick and Pay.
