LOL! There is an easy website: http://www.timeanddate.com/ which you can use for countdowns, calculating time between two dates and more.
If you are on Facebook you have more options. It's there as well, and remembers your last countdowns. So you don't need to fill in the dates/times again.
Not posting much here anymore, but the photo's you can follow here There is plenty there.

Feel free to use any of these additional letters to correct the spelling of words found in the above post: a-e-t-n-d-i-o-s-m-l-u-y-h-c

I have known for over a year that I will be visiting the Kruger Park , however that visit is still over two years away . That's a countdown of well over 3 years . That's a long time but finances dictate it is so , and it will be a seven week holiday in South Africa with a fantastic five weeks in the Park . Really looking forward to it - understatement of the year .

July 8th 2017 we shall be rolling through the gate at Phalobowra heading to Mopani for 3 nights followed by 3 nights at Letaba another 3 at Satara then finishing with 3 more nights at Skukuza.

Took a long time to get through to booking office but well worth the wait as we got the camps we wanted but unfortunately not the bungalows we were after.

The main point is we will be there, now only 336 more sleeps to go. and a lot of travel plans to sort out.

My Kruger trip in April 2017 is still 226 sleeps away.

BUT

a few months ago a friend offered me 5 nights FREE :big_eyes: with a group of them at Nyati guest house in Skukuza. From 24 Sept to 29 Sept. I had to projects scheduled for go live on 16 Sept and 24 Sept and could not accept this amazing offer :cry: :cry:
However, both my projects have now been delayed to October and November :( :( but that means I can now accept her offer! I can only go for 3 nights, but it is still better than nothing, and completely unexpected!

so now only 31 sleeps until I am back in my 2nd favourite place in the world!

Hi there guys,

First post on the forums but we've been reading for a while now. Us two kiwi birds from NZ will be going to the Kruger in April next year (2017) for our second trip. We first experienced this amazing place in September 2014 and now we are heading back!

Just 220 days to go! Woo! ... Feels like forever though :wall:

Anyways, we will be sure to remember our yellow ribbons :wink:

Maybe make some new friends while we are out there :dance:

All the best,

Kiwi campers
