Well I have just messed up my countdown as I phoned Satara this morning and managed to add a further 2 nights to our visit so we leave on Saturday the 17th
which now brings the countdown down to 10 :dance: :dance: :dance: :D :D :D


Now am jealous Sparrow, Very Very Jealous indeed :redface: :redface: :redface:

Anyway Be on the lookout for the white Lion of the S100 Super Pride, and if you do see it, please keep it there, so I can see it on Christmas Day.

Mischief it is actually more like a monocular so it has like one lens, the other is used as an infrared, and it has like a screen in the eyepiece something close to the old video cameras, where you see the eyepiece it has a mini screen which shows whatever you looking at at night.

So it is more like a night vision Monocular which uses infrared to see in the dark. It does bring things closer but not so much. The zoom is only 5x I think

Kallis, that sounds like a really exciting little toy. :mrgreen:

I will be taking my LG 360 degree cam as my new toy. It is really small, lightweight and I am curious about the possibilities. It would be perfect for walks, as it weighs about the same as a cell phone.

Today, 14 days, :dance: :dance: :dance: I will be on my way to Numbi Gate.

It seems to have been a long, long time.

So many Mites on the way, might just tip the planet over. I see that some very good rains are predicted for next week, North to South, so maybe This $#&^%$^& drought is over. To all enjoy, Shingwedzi may never recover!!!!!!

Wow MM. It is, its like every time I visit the Park, I need a new toy with me. That sounds really exciting, a 360 Degree Cam, sounds very fun, in just about every situation, even if you put it in say your car, on the dashboard it could be well worth to see the facial reactions at certain sightings.

I am planning on taking my action cam this time as a dash cam particularly for Kruger, just for it to record the road constantly and type of conversations that come up in the car as we looking for sightings and as something comes up. 16

Leervis sounds good, hopefully will rain loads over the next week. Should be a life saver for so many animals.

Thanks Hilda, am sure we all will have a fab time in Kruger

Yay Sparrow, although I must say I am jealous of you going so soon :mrgreen:

As for me, I am on 16 days, although as per my phone by 13:00 today it will be 15 days :tongue:
