Only 169 sleeps to go but the main thing is it's in this year.

Flights, accommodation and activities paid for so only have to settle car hire payment and a few refills at the petrol bowsers when we arrive

Seven weeks from today we will drive through Malelane Gate & back into the park for our 2nd trip.

Wild Card purchased - check. The online form failed but they emailed the application.
Camps booked - check.
Fortuner rented - check. Since we are staying at a number of Bushveld camps I opted for BIG.
Flights all sorted - check. Except the SA flights that I can't choose seats until <24 hrs before.
Buy a high powered mini flashlight for the Bushveld camps - not yet. (Nitecore MH27)
Buy decent binoculars - not yet. (Opticron 8X33 Savanna R)
Bug my spouse to learn her new camera - well, starting to . . . :mrgreen:
Getting excited? Yes.

Have you changed your Avatar, or am I "deurmekaar" after reading a lot of comments? :hmz:

Are you sure it is Kruger where you want to be? I'm not sure that you are sure! Do I make sense? See you tomorrow! :dance: :dance:

I am sure there will be a few 'Mites visiting Kruger during the school holidays. Why not update your dates on this thread
viewtopic.php?style=2&f=69&t=33456

PM Jazil to update your dates!

And hopefully everyone will wear their yellow ribbons so those of us there can meet each other!
