On our day visit on Saturday, saw 2 YR's.
Both at Satara Rest Camp in parking area outside shop.
1 belonged to UK visitors,Stephanie (who was in the shop )and family/friends so just said hi to husband.
The second was in a big 4x4 vehicle, the yellow mirror socks were on the dashboard, so I suspect they did not fit :hmz: :hmz: :hmz: wonder if it could have been Hippotragus?

No Mischief, the mirror socks did not fit so I didn’t buy them. I have a yellow ribbon on my mirror. Not at Satara when you were there anyway.

Saw a yellow ribbon at Punda Maria this morning buy he’d driven past before I could react

In July we spent some 14 days in the Kruger, flying our yellow ribbon.
Unfortunately we never saw any other yellow ribbons. :(
We were actually wondering if people still do but reading these postings, we obviously visited during a YR dry spell :lol:

Glad to have met you all, Merlin! :D
I admit I never use the Yellow Ribbon anymore but couldn't resist looking for your car to say hello. Hope you have a fantastic rest of the trip.

It must have been you, Goronta - I think it was an Avanza. What a pity - it would have been so nice to say "Hi". We spent 4 nights at Punda and left on 24th.
