At least once a year which is most definitely not enough...

But then with the current petrol price once a year is better than never :dance:

Staying 32 min (45 min with the stop and go) from Malelane, we go atleast twice a month

A family wildcard is so worth the money you spend on it, and the experience of tranquility and paradise is priceless

If my SO decides to leave me tomorrow, I will become a ranger for sure!!!

i volunteered for this spot

As for the money im earning, its way less than I could earn in JHB/PTA, however, the quality of life has no price

We stay just 10 Km from KP and go just about every weekend - More than 8 times this year and have been blessed to see the big 5 several times over - however I must say - seeing Leopard is for me the best thrill.

Just getting worried that having seen Leopard every time we have been in the last six weeks we may start having a dry spell - but did see a Leopard Kill a few weeks ago so will cherish that for a while to come.

We visit the Kruger National Park at least once a year. In a good year twice :D .

About 20 trips to Kruger and 29 to Ingwelala private reserve which form part of the greater Kruger area. I must say that I am very fortunate to know three guys who own property in the reserve so I get invited very often, although I often have to volunteer to be "man Friday" for the weekend. This include to be the chef, barman, dishwasher and driver. But who cares? :imsmilin:
