372 days to go :roll: :roll:

I HAVE to start a countdown, it does help.

Not long RemiE and I can imagine how excited you and SO must be.

All those that are getting close to their trips, have a wonderful time and safe travels. :thumbs_up:


:hands: Tessa G

Before you know it you and SO will be busy packing and on your way.

We have 40 day to go still, but it feels like time ieventually start flying by faster :dance:

(My sister and her SO arrived in Kruger Yesterday and the report back from the park is very positive)

Whilst you are busy on the drawing board, add a few nights at Balule. I somehow convinced SO to let us also stay over there this holiday……..so excited :mrgreen: )

We are still over 300 and I am not going to put it here until we reach 299 :lol: :lol:

I am terrible, because I get excited way too early, but we leave CT on 17th Dec, drive up to Hazeyview to stay with the family at their timeshare on the 18th and then into the park on the 23rd.....BUT.....whose to say that we won't be entering as a Day Tripper before the 23rd....you just cant keep us away can you? :dance: :dance: :dance:


To all those going soon and a bit later, lots of great sightings and special times.....with TR'S pleeeeeze for those of us who are waiting and waiting :whistle: :whistle: and dont forget to fly your yellow ribbons. There is nothing nicer than to see a yellow ribbon driving up the road and to be able to stop and chat about all things bush!!!
