I see we have July and August folks on the countdown ...... awesome! Do we have any Forumites that will be in Kruger from Oct 13th to Oct 26th??? We will be staying at Berg en Dal and Satara. It would be great to meet up with other ites during this time.

Now I know I have been a bit quiet lately, despite regular visits to the park, but I still read the TRs and keep an eye on my fellow Kruger addicts adventures...

Its been a crazy 18 months but finally my goal is in sight, not satisfied with my 2 trips a year to South Africa I have managed to wheedle my way around my management to the point where I can finally relocate full time to South Africa in the new year :D

Such was my delight at this development that I immediately booked 11 days in the park in October, to celebrate, Satara, Letaba and Skukuza (a first for us), in the meanwhile the countdown for our great trek has started too :dance: :dance: :dance:

Its official - just bought one way miles tickets for my daughter and I for next July - Cool Girls 2016 will ride again! Lia (8), two of her aunts, one uncle, one 8 year-old cousin, one grandma this time. We're letting our token guy in only because he's related :) .Our 3 week itinerary is as follows (2 days in each for most part) - Skukuza, Talamati, Shimuwini, Shingwedzi, Pafuri, Mopani, Olifants, Satara, Lower Sabie, Biyamiti, Berg en Dal (well - we hope, as we haven't completed our reservations yet so fingers crossed!). Lots of driving but hard to not see the whole park when you're so far away! 10 months and 3 weeks away! Hopefully I'll build up enough air miles to purchase our return at some point!! :roll:

Sooooo super excited to be there again and to show more family how amazing Kruger is!
