Where would you like to be right now?

Unread post by Meandering Mouse » Sun Oct 13, 2013 9:04 am

I have a fairly long wait before my next trip. For some reason today is a missing Kruger day.

This is where I would like to be. The S1.

What about you?

I remember someone doing a trip report last September and it was freezing. Never take the sunshine for granted this time of the year.

Trrp, sigh, you guys did of course send this nonsense weather to the interior. If you wish, you are welcome to keep it your side.

This was taken last September at the Albesini ruins. My daughter is an historian and she really appreciated looking at the artifacts.

I would not mind being there today. 8)

Trrp, perfect for Spring :thumbs_up:

Tent Dweller, I agree about the Fayi loop being an excellent road. I do tend to get lost though. :redface: :redface: :redface:

This is my Spring contribution, taken at Orpen Gate.

Orpen dam is looking rather full. 8) Last time I visited, it was empty and a bit smelly. Lovely how nature rejuvenates.

I am on my way to join you, but taking the high road.

Sable dam.

I was thinking of booking three days over new year again. :hmz: There was a one bedded hut available in on of my favorite camps.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. :hmz: :hmz: :hmz:

September can have very cold days and very hot days. This was on a very hot day, close to Lower Sabie. In true ellie style, the little ones were being protected.

I wish that I was watching ellies somewhere, anywhere in Kruger.
