Hi Hilda,

Time is still going far too slow as we're concerned!
T-bal is our son and he has written our previous trip reports: Cloggy Kruger sightings and return of the Cloggy Kruger sightings.
He is also the one that takes most of the beautiful photographs posted on the travel tales. :cam:
He will be joining us again this time so assume he'll be wanting to write this travel tale as well.
Will be keeping our own diary just in case anyway! :wink:
Back to Kruger at last!!

I have know idea how long this countdown will be :hmz:
Last night after a braai with Nkulu at our hut in Pretoriuskop , I escorted Nkulu safely back to her hut , carried her chair , cooler box ( it was quite light by then :D ) etc.

I found out this morning why there was so much stuff for me to carry back to nkulu's place. It is because her hands were full as she was carrying my camera :big_eyes:

So the countdown begins , when will I get the camera back......................................... :D

Should be quite interesting to see what photographs " I took" after my camera was "borrowed" :D :D :D - Nkulu did phone at about 2 pm to tell me that she had my camera :D
I hear that I have some super lion and leopard sighting photographs on my camera :thumbs_up: ( not bad as I driving home at the time :lol: :lol:

So actually , it is a super countdown to have , I will get to see Nkulu once again :D :D

(ps. in nkulu's defence , we both have the same cameras , so the " theft" is quite understandable :thumbs_up: :D :D :D )

All good , my camera is in safe hands Image

You are brave - I don't do night driving these days! I prefer to go up the day before and stay another night after the camps - too tired to face a long trip home.
