Just wondering how the spending of the R250 million is going? Seems very quiet? Perhaps someone on the ground can enlighten us on any positive changes since this huge financial injection was received.

Sadly, the slaughter of the rhino seems to be unrelentless

I just want to say thank you to some deserving staff members in Kruger :wink:

Firstly… the ladies at Orpen camp’s reception :gflower: They greeted us with warm smiles and our check in was handled professionally and quickly. They were also very patient with a female tourist who seemed to have a problem with her credit card. Overall, they were very friendly and helpful. Well done to them! :clap: :clap:

Secondly… the two male cashiers in the Orpen shop (whose names escape me at the moment :redface: ) They were so friendly and it really looked like they are enjoying their jobs! It was a pleasure shopping there. Also, the renovated shop looks great! :clap: :clap:

Lastly, the staff at Tshokwane :gflower: The staff were friendly and the food was, as always, delicious. They have been very consistent in their service delivery over the past few years. Really a job well done! :clap: :clap:

The staff in the restaurants, shops and reception are the ones we as tourists deal with directly, it's great to see so many of them doing a fantastic job as this leaves a lasting impression

Thank you for making our Kruger trips extra special! Image

Well done to all the staff concerned. They must obviously enjoy their work very much but probably also love being helpful and of assistance!! What is most important is that they have such a positive and infectious passion. They all deserve a round of applause!!! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

If it wasn't for Shing and Tamboti, Maroela would get my vote but that's purely personal preference. Our recent stay at Maroela was superb in all ways (except for the Spurfowl who wanted to roost on Jax's head which resulted in me crying with laughter and Jax being less than impressed :lol: :lol: :lol: )
