Ya, it does seem close on the map I suppose, I think it's about a 6 hour drive to the South of the Kruger.

But I agree with you there on how far it is for overseas people to get to the Kruger. When is your next trip?

We are half way through the year already so I suppose March 2017 isn't that far away after all :)

Enjoy your countdown :dance:

Yup, it won't be long.
But as quick it comes, it will be over. But am just enjoying the planning at the moment.

July 8th 2017 we shall be rolling through the gate at Phalobowra heading to Mopani for 3 nights followed by 3 nights at Letaba another 3 at Satara then finishing with 3 more nights at Skukuza.

Took a long time to get through to booking office but well worth the wait as we got the camps we wanted but unfortunately not the bungalows we were after.

The main point is we will be there, now only 336 more sleeps to go. and a lot of travel plans to sort out.

Actually 18 weeks sounds the less daunting. For some odd reason we always think of our countdown in terms of weeks until the days get to two digits. How mad is that!!

And on that thought....74 days to go for us

My Kruger trip in April 2017 is still 226 sleeps away.

BUT

a few months ago a friend offered me 5 nights FREE :big_eyes: with a group of them at Nyati guest house in Skukuza. From 24 Sept to 29 Sept. I had to projects scheduled for go live on 16 Sept and 24 Sept and could not accept this amazing offer :cry: :cry:
However, both my projects have now been delayed to October and November :( :( but that means I can now accept her offer! I can only go for 3 nights, but it is still better than nothing, and completely unexpected!

so now only 31 sleeps until I am back in my 2nd favourite place in the world!
