Hey everyone, we have been missing from this wonderfull forum for some time now, we have now downsized our home in Australia in preparation for more frequent visits to our favourite place on earth.....Kruger.

We will be returning to Kruger later this year in July for nearing 4 weeks and like everyone else posting here, we too can't wait and already counting the days.

Like all of our other Kruger trips, we look forward to those yellow ribbons and friendly chats, whether it be out and about or over a beer and braai in a rest camp or picnic spot, perfect.

Regards,
Vicki & Rob

VicRob,
About time. We will miss you by a matter of days, returning home at the end of May. We still have Rob's glasses, so hope that he has some good replacements. It seems that we will see Kruger in an altogether different light, based on the present (and perhaps deepening) drought.

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: )
