Seven weeks from today we will drive through Malelane Gate & back into the park for our 2nd trip.

Wild Card purchased - check. The online form failed but they emailed the application.
Camps booked - check.
Fortuner rented - check. Since we are staying at a number of Bushveld camps I opted for BIG.
Flights all sorted - check. Except the SA flights that I can't choose seats until <24 hrs before.
Buy a high powered mini flashlight for the Bushveld camps - not yet. (Nitecore MH27)
Buy decent binoculars - not yet. (Opticron 8X33 Savanna R)
Bug my spouse to learn her new camera - well, starting to . . . :mrgreen:
Getting excited? Yes.

Thanks all.

With me visiting Kruger alone, I am a little apprehensive at the thought of meeting up with a non too pleased elephant, but apart from that, really looking forward to it (except for the spiders!!). Next year, hubby is coming along!
