Hi Safarigal
We will be departing from Miami on Oct 25th. How long will you be spending in S.A?

Perhaps post your itinerary on (When will I see your yellow ribbon?)
viewtopic.php?f=69&t=33456

It would be fun to connect while there if our schedules overlap??

Travel safe,

Ed and Gail,

19 sleeps until we head for the airport and 21 until we reach Kruger. That doesn't sound too bad, does it?

Well done Vernao. The yellow ribbon or any type of yellow adornment should be tied preferably to the rear view mirrors of either the driver and / or passenger doors.Preferably both :lol: :lol: :lol:
Just a nice way to identify fellow Forum members that you may come across whilst driving in the Park or when you are in the camps.Some amazing steadfast friendships with like-minded and interesting people have been formed this way :dance: :dance:
