I agree with Grantmissy, once Kruger has got you it's really got you. I've also be going to Kruger for as long as I can remember with my parents and family.

I love the place and I will keep on going for as long as I can.

ELsa and Kylstron took us kids to Kruger during the Easter holidays when I was around 10. How they survived with four fighting kids in the back seat - mommy he is touching me, daddy he hit me, stop that etc. anyway the Kruger bug slipped in during those fights and now as adults three decades later, we all love the place.

The malaria pill was a huge challenge for me as well. Elsa use to crush them up as I could not swallow them which looking back now made it twenty times worse.

The great memories of camping in the caravan, a wonderful cheetah x2 sighting on a fallen down tree, the baboons that use to hitch a ride on the car and have Elsa hiding behind the map, such fun.

I have always had a love of any animal big or small. I had always wanted to go to the Kruger but my first experience with the bush was in Zimbabwe a 6 week holiday, after staying at Hwange that was it. I had to one day go back to see wild animals. So finally this year I came to the Kruger and boy did it live up to all my expectations. Before I got in the park I was in love. Next years already in the plan it has me hooked.
Africa's animals move at their own pace, so let us follow suit and let them.
