Wildchild and Bushkid to KNP Again

Unread post by wildchild » Sun Apr 22, 2007 5:32 pm

Yipeeeeeee :!: :!: :!: Yes :!: :!: :!: We will be going to KNP again this coming long weekend. Will be staying at Marloth Park and visiting the Park daily. Wish us luck with wonderful sightings which we can in turn, share with everyone. Leaving on Thursday night and hope to be in the park early Friday morning. We still have'nt seen caracal, serval and wildcat. Who knows, maybe this will be the trip that produces these sightings. :D :wink:

For serval and wildcat, your best bet is a night ride from Talamati, but that is a long way from MP. Good luck anyway!

We will also be staying in Marloth for the long weekend. Have never been there before, so we are all very exited. Will visit the Park on Sunday. Enter at Malelane and do the round trip to exit at Croc Bridge. Hope to see lots of game in Marloth and in Kruger :D
