Carol, you are a life saver. Low Cal juice should go down a real treat. :k

Tessa you mentioned custard slices. I have had a craving all day. :naughty:

I have a love hate relationship with all types of monkeys Trrp. They just don’t like me, but for the most part, I still think they are cute. Well…..vervets that is.

I wish it was me going into the park in a few days MM. Everyone will be back before I get to visit again in August. Tsendze is one of the camps I have booked.

I have never camped in the Park in December Tessa, but this is what you will be missing by not going to Balule. Put it on your bucket list. Oh to be there now, *Sigh*

Balule is on my bucket list in capital letters Mizzbee.

I have read the thread on Balule and it sounds very very special and I am sure we will do it one day. :D

Thanks for the photo to help us experience Balule and especially with your braai and the sunset. I can also imagine all the sounds of the bush as the day ends and evening takes over.

Mizzbee... *sigh* Balule is an amazing and special camp. :mrgreen: ... If I close my eyes I can hear the Hippo in the river below....Thanks for your pic to remind me again. :thumbs_up:

Spending some time at Tamboti again would be just so much fun...my favourite camp. :D These little darlings roam around the camp area and are extra cute and so entertaining !!

Balule is so special in every way, Mizzbee :thumbs_up: That looks about the time that the Hyena makes its evening patrol.

Trrp, they are always such a pleasure. 8)

As the weekend approaches my thoughts are just about spending some time in Kruger again *sigh*

So this weekend I would just like to be anywhere in Kruger :D ....Cooler box packet and ready to roll, sure there are lots of 'mites who have the same desire!!!

The party was fantastic, but I think it is time to get back to our lovely drives, cooler box all ready with some eats and treats and find that water hole with a gorgeous tree so we can switch the engine off and just relax and watch.

As you say Trrrrp, anywhere would be lovely. :D

Love that giraffe

I like to spend weekends in the Park at smaller camps and drive the roads less travelled, if there is such a thing in the Kruger.
I think I may have found the perfect spot for some refreshments.

Oh yes, that's the ticket Mizzbee.

I am not familiar with this dam and have looked on the map and cant find it. Is it what I know as Lugmag Dam?

Tessa, it is approximately 35 kms North of Lugmag Dam. I don't recall seeing it previously either. The immediate area had plenty of game.
I will spend more time there on future visits. :D
