It is never easy giving advice to somebody visiting KTP, because to be there in the first instance is always a bonus :D .

I will be more than happy with an itinerary like yours :thumbs_up: .

According to your itinerary you cover most of the park, except the area from TR to Melkvlei that will only be explored during your drive to NO :hmz: .

Maybe an extra night at TR when you enter the park will be a good idea :thumbs_up: .



Barryels

I am honoured to get advice from an expert like you. I thought I was going to be light on the southern part of the park which I have largely ignored in the past only to find posting of great sightings.

I am sold and booking and extra night in TR at the start of the trip.

One final bit....I am planning to do the entire trip solo so slightly concerned in case of any mishaps with car etc and no one to give a hand. Should I be worried? Done KTP twice before but always with someone.

thanks
