The Kruger Trail

Unread post by Imberbe » Sun Nov 26, 2017 9:46 pm

Imagine the ultimate wilderness experience ...

Walking the length of Kruger National Park!


Starting at the wildest outpost ... Crooks Corner on the Limpopo. There where South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe meet.

Seeing those special places off the tourist roads.

No longer wondering what is behind that hill in the distance. Rather exploring that valley, climbing that hill, disappearing from sight.

Have you ever wished you could be part of such an experience?

I wonder if this ultimate wilderness experience, that I am imagining, would include Memories in a Leadwood fire 8)

Imberbe wrote:The red embers of a Leadwood fire will burn for hours, slowly releasing the warmth of a lifetime spent in the Bushveld. Blue flames jump and dance, turning in to a red glow which illuminates a small circle in the dark of the African bush. Outside the dark hides mystery and myth, danger and excitement. Staring in to the flames releases long held memories.

Come share this circle of light and warmth.

I see an End to end Kruger trail was first mooted way back in 2008 and would certainly be something special. :thumbs_up:

Imberbe that would be a dream!! Can't imagine how it will get footing, but if ever possible I will without hesitation take unpaid leave and do it. Much cheaper way of living than I do now 8) :lol: Are there serious plans for such a trail?

Sounds fantastic. Completed the Olifants backpack trail in September and the only fault was... it was at least a week too short :)

A dream is a possibility ... just add a date to make it a reality. :whistle:
