Its official - just bought one way miles tickets for my daughter and I for next July - Cool Girls 2016 will ride again! Lia (8), two of her aunts, one uncle, one 8 year-old cousin, one grandma this time. We're letting our token guy in only because he's related :) .Our 3 week itinerary is as follows (2 days in each for most part) - Skukuza, Talamati, Shimuwini, Shingwedzi, Pafuri, Mopani, Olifants, Satara, Lower Sabie, Biyamiti, Berg en Dal (well - we hope, as we haven't completed our reservations yet so fingers crossed!). Lots of driving but hard to not see the whole park when you're so far away! 10 months and 3 weeks away! Hopefully I'll build up enough air miles to purchase our return at some point!! :roll:

Sooooo super excited to be there again and to show more family how amazing Kruger is!
