Hi Samantha,

It seems just a little hop on the map, although I know that it is close to 400km from Joburg.
Less than an hour by plane to Skukuza, though.
Still easier to do that the 9200km from where I am.

But I understand that it is still a lo-o-o-o-ng way to drive.

Anyway March '17 is just around the corner :wink:

It'll be worth the wait! :thumbs_up:

Regards
Mike

Ya, it does seem close on the map I suppose, I think it's about a 6 hour drive to the South of the Kruger.

But I agree with you there on how far it is for overseas people to get to the Kruger. When is your next trip?

We are half way through the year already so I suppose March 2017 isn't that far away after all :)

I'm fortunate enough to have a 12 night stay, leaving the UK on the 4th of September. Only 37 days left. :dance:
But then when I'm back, you've only got about 7 month left to your trip and I am looking at 700 days :shock: , if there is to be another trip.

As soon as you know it you will be on the plane on the way to the Kruger, not long now :) I wish I could go now.

Enjoy your trip, I hope you see some nice sightings.

Even less now, Harris!

Suppose the bags are packed, and you're tramping at the bit to get goin'.

Have a great trip and I hope you will see all you want to see.

Three weeks, then I'll be on my way with daughter, grand daughter and grandson! We will only be spending 4 nights, just outside the Park, but that is better than nothing!!

Even closer to September! :wink:
But, November is just around the corner, and when I'm back, facing a cold northern hemisphere winter, you're even closer to your time in Paradise. :mrgreen:
Enjoy your countdown :dance:

3 Weeks, or 21 days or 504 hours, thereabout. Not long now!
Have a great family time and enjoy the park as well.

Yup, it won't be long.
But as quick it comes, it will be over. But am just enjoying the planning at the moment.
