Happy to share with folks here that are as excited as i am to get to kruger! 40 days till departure from alaska and 42 until we land in skukuza!! Its what has held me together this Spring-- just switching over to webcams, planning our trip and dreaming, while slogging through a slew of work :roll: . We were there last October for 8 days on the tail end of a 7 week camp trip through zambia, botswana, zimbabwe and i just loved kruger. So lucky this soon after returning home to bring 81 year old mom, 6 year old daughter (her 2nd trip!) and sister for a multi-generational all girls trip. Lots of driving, but i want them to see as much of park as possible so we head camp by camp north right away. we have view accommodations most places so I am just really excited!! And next trip i'll know exactly what camps i want to stay at :)
land in skukuza may 22
lower sabie may 22
satara may 23
letaba may 24
shimuweni may 25, 26
punda may 27, 28
sirheni may 29, 30
mopani may 31 - jun1
olifants jun 2 - 3

Moose that looks like an amazing trip that you have planned. I am sure that your girls will totally enjoy it and somehow, it seems, Kruger rewards those that travel so far to visit. Hope that you have amazing sightings.
10 -13 May Berg en Dal Camping
14 May Lower Sabie Chalet
15 - 18 Pretoriuskop Camping
19 May Satara Chalet
20 - 24 May Balule Camping

thx leervis I hope so! i figure we're there long enough to see something and with luck, many things! We were quite fortunate last time I think - lots of wildlife from punda on down, really, and honestly barely anyone else on the roads, with just a few exceptions on the southern tarmac of course. It'll be an entirely different season this time, so really curious as to what that will be like and not to mention having bungalows with our own bathroom (thanks to my mom! ). Cheers - looks like you've got a nice two weeks planned just before us!

Got itchy feet, so booked a trip for May!!

Will be at Punda Maria for 4 nights (21-25 May), Shingwedzi 3 nights (25-28 May) and Letaba 2 nights (29-30 May).

Haven't started actually counting the days, but it is not too long!

Anyone else going to be at any of those camps at the same time?
