My gran build a house at Sabie Park (2.5km form the Kruger Gate) and we have been going there since I was 4. I have been a true Krugerian since 2008 and my first overnight stay was in Dec 2010 now I try to go as often as possible twice in 2011 and in Feb 2012 want to book for Nov as well :thumbs_up:

DellaC and Anri it seems like if the Kruger really enters a person psyche it is difficult to stay away :D . I wonder whether some people “never allows Kruger in” and therefore would not fully understand those who always have a longing to go back?

We try at least once a year, but if we're very lucky twice.

Been there all seasons, it does not really matter, as long as we're able to visit Kruger all is well........ :dance: :dance:

We go to Kruger once or twice a year 8)
We also do some day visits when the craving gets too much to bear :dance:

We save all our pennies and holiday days to fly over to Kruger once a year. Next year is a big birthday and I have already made arrangements to visit in Jan for our annual holiday and then to come over again in May for my birthday. Such a great feeling to know we will be in my bestest place twice next year :hands:

Moving to Pretoria to study nature conservation next year though, so wont have as much time in the park :(
