Have a great time in Marakele. It's a wonderful, small park.
I am sure you will love it.

Hi all, its been a while. 2 and a half years since I was last in the park. I only have 104 days to go before I am in the park again, this time in Skukuza.

Really looking forward to this as I normally go to my favorite camps Shingwedzi and Letaba, I have not been to Skukuza in 12 years. Waiting to see how the lower camps have changed. :dance: :dance: :dance: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
Skukuza with my children for a boys weekend - 6th January to the 10th January 2016 :dance: :dance: :thumbs_up:
