Shame MM... I really hoped it was you :redface:

Now I will have to put my thinking cap back on, and decide which forumite is my last guess... I'm at a bit of a loss now... :wall: :roll:

Still wish it was me... :lol:

Never seen at Addo!
Ultimately rare sighting guaranteed on 28th March 2012!


So today is the big day :dance: :dance:
My son thinks there's going to be a crocodile on the cam... he's only 3, but I think that's a good guess :clap:

Hi PJL! :yaya:

Will you be on the cams between 12 and 2?
I can't watch any later than 10am, as I have a sporting commitment I need to honour.

Am really REALLY hoping someone will be on here to capture the photos!!! :pray: :D

I think your son's guess is as good as any of ours - that is quite cute, picking the crocodile!

Cheers for now :lol:

I wonder who is swinging from the rafters :hmz:

R100 for a correct guess.

I think the tarzan-like 'mite is Melph - that seems like something she would do :D
That is a very nice thought and idea, MM

Speaking of donations - I think (from memory) I guessed four of our 'mites correctly, which means another R200 going into the fundraising for the mobile cam :roll:

Hopefully we can raise some more (much-needed) coin for this awesome project!!! :pray: :D

ils, yes yesterday was just a fun day and one I'll never forget!!

Mel, you are correct!!! What a fun girl, Melph!!! I had the privilege to drive with the two Mel's and all of us was longing for the 3rd Mel!!! No excuse for next time.....

MM......collect your money!!! (I saw you had a great time with Melph in J'burg)

PJL, yes Ronnie is on the right of the photo with the blue jeans. On the left is David (Melph's father) with a blue sweeter.

Vinkie, thanks for posting the pic!!!

A warning!!! Prepare yourself for the greatest Trip Reports!!!!!

Last but not least.......DANKIE DANIE !!!! Danie made the photo session possible and had all the trouble to keep the six of us under control (didn't succeeded with Welph). He switched the cam to see us and used his lunch break for that!!!

Koedoe, thank you for your observation.

It was wonderful to see Melph and Dave. Very, very special people. Hansa might have to produce a few more beers though, after our meeting.

I have met Lionspoon and Spots.

A more wonderful yellow ribbon moment, I cannot imagine.
