Sorry for my late reply Mads, but I couldn't get into the SANParks website yesterday from one o'clock onwards! I could open any other website, but not this one! Maybe they were running updates or something. :)

I am sure it won't be a problem for one or two extra persons! You are more than welcome, and we are so much looking forward to see you again! :dance: :dance:

Have a great time everyone.

Pity most of the 'mites down here in CT are 'home birds' and are reluctant to get out together.

There is a mentality here (not necessarily among forumites) that to travel 20 km at night is like going to a foreign country.

One day I will make it up to the Big Smoke again and I would love to meet you all in person.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".
