Hi all

Tomorrow I will try to beat the early bird to leave my temporary base in Pretoria for a few days in KNP with my family :dance:

Watch this space. I'm sure I will have some thing to report... :hmz:

byeeeeeeeeee :twisted: :twisted:

I say 'no bail to poachers', name and shame them, even at a sniff of suspicion. Lets get rid of them quickly

Hi All

Kruger is a heaven on earth indeed. As I sit here in Berg n Dal on my stoep, watching my fire burn so I can 'tan a chop' in a few minutes time, I am reflecting on an amazing day. :clap:

Very few people appreciate the beauty of Kruger. Whether summer winter, green or burnt, it remains heaven on earth. Thank you, Father for this piece of your creation.

I'm not going to make this my TR, but i saw 11 white rhino today!!! Huh????? :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh:

Also ellie, buffalo, and lots of what many people call 'general game'.

But hippo on the croc bridge before entering malelane gate and LION as a first sighting :thumbs_up: was special.

Tomorrow morning at 5h15 I will be celebrating a most special birthday when I will be walking in the heaven I love so much. Even if we see nothing, I will be in heaven :D :lol: :D :lol:

Catch you all tomorrow noght after a night drive :twisted:

A few things:
1. Thank you for all the birthday greetings :thumbs_up: It is really special walking in the wild african bush and touching and feeling creation everywhere around you

2. To OB and Stanley who took us on the walk, THANK YOU :clap: Their knowledge and expertise made me feel really confortable. BUT I will have to lose a few kg's before walking around the Berg n Dal mountains again :redface:

3. Many special sightings, I wish the birds would jsut sit still a little longer so i could take some decent pics :huh:

will start TR proper when back in Slummies next week
