Well done and thank you ekoppen. We know very well just how much these improvements can mean to a community. We overlap with you on several days so will look out for you both.

Only 8 more sleeps for us until we head off to London Heathrow and we will be driving through Phabeni Gate 2 days after that. Time to get out those YRs and mirror socks me thinks!

We're suckers for the north so it always makes for less days in each camp somehow!

In 8 more sleeps we're off on the plane via Heathrow to Skukuza! Yippee! First time staying at Talamati, Orpen and Pretoriuskop... And the Sweni trail too! Exciting!

We are in Phalaborwa this morning. Heading to supermarkets this morning and then driving to Olifants for 3 nights, then to Satara for 3 nights on Oct 28 and to Lower Sabie for 3 nights on Oct 31. We are in bungalows in all 3 parks and we will have a yellow ribbon on the mirror of our small white car. We are really looking forward to a great 9 days in Kruger. :D

Welcome to the forum jimmac! Have a wonderful 9 days in the Park, and I hope you meet lots of other 'mites flying yellow ribbons! You can also tell us all about your fantastic experiences and sightings in a travel tale once you are back home! :dance: :dance:

2 sleeps! :dance: :dance:
Decided yesterday to make a quick trip to see if I can get a sighting of the Egyptian Vulture and see of the pelicans are still at Sable dam. Just one night at Letaba, but hoping for a successful twitch. And if I miss out, well, I'll still be in Kruger for a few hours!
