... and I hope you got to enjoy some of your visit RobertT, and will share that part with the forums in a Trip Report?

We have shared many great finds and been tipped off about others in the local area. Working in IT everyday I want to get as far away from technology as possible when on holiday.


Awesome Gary! That is truly the spirit of sharing in the park in my opinion! 2/3's of the fun is getting there!

Having visited Kruger since the early 70's that is the way we always used to do it Gary!!! :dance:

If we had a special sighting (and I don't just mean the big5) I would be itching to tell the first car we met after leaving the area. I would maybe also tell the next car, but after that as we drove further away, it was "everyone for themselves again"!!! :lol:

I still share to this day, and always appreciate if people share with me, but this is on a one to one basis, so the world and his wife are not going to pitch!!!

Many years ago while we were on the Mahonie Loop, when we were almost back at camp, an old Oom flagged us down and very quietly said "If you look to your right just off the road, you will see a Suni!!!!!"

I am quite sure that we would never have spotted him on our own!!! :whistle: :whistle:

I'm just wondering - :hmz: What sighting/s get missed when one is keeping your eye on the sighting app?
