Hi there guys,

First post on the forums but we've been reading for a while now. Us two kiwi birds from NZ will be going to the Kruger in April next year (2017) for our second trip. We first experienced this amazing place in September 2014 and now we are heading back!

Just 220 days to go! Woo! ... Feels like forever though :wall:

Anyways, we will be sure to remember our yellow ribbons :wink:

Maybe make some new friends while we are out there :dance:

All the best,

Kiwi campers

A warm welcome to this special Forum kiwi_camper.Wonderful news that you are returning to visit the Kruger National Park for a second time. :gflower: 220 days seems like a long time but by spending time exploring the forum and catching the webcam highlights you will both be right in the mood to experience the Real Deal!

Do remember the yellow ribbons :dance: :clap: and almost guaranteed you will meet new friends.

Take care now!

What I do find a bit strange is that not many advertise their presence on

I agree 100% with isinkwe! I know for a fact (from Facebook and this thread) of some folks who will be in the park the same time as us and yet they never seem to post on the "When Will I See Yellow Ribbons in Kruger" thread. We have made some lovely friends by connecting with people before our trip and then meeting up with them in the park. I am not a particularly social person, but this connects you with kindred spirits and has never failed to be worthwhile.

I tend to spend most of my forum time on either the Kruger National Park or the KNP Camps and Roads sections, and when I try to find the "When Will I See Yellow Ribbons in Kruger" thread, it always takes me a long time for some reason (OLD?!). I tend to forget that it is under Meets and Greets and I spend forever wandering around. I wonder if I am the only one who suffers from this? I wonder if it would be possible to have this in the Kruger National Park section - up there with Malaria and Driving Routes so everyone could find it. I know the AMAZING moderators like to keep the social stuff in one area, but I would love to see an exception here.

Getting very very very excited about our next, long-anticipated trip,
October 14 - November 23 2016
14/10/16 - 19/10/16 Skukuza
20/10/16 - 24/10/16 Lower Sabie

18/11/16 - 21/11/16 Biyamiti
