Just 6 weeks before we depart from the US. First Capetown a visit to the Hermanus then hopefully to see the flowers at West Coast National Park Steenbok trail. Hope they are receiving rain. I love Fynbos! Then on to Kruger for 3 weeks starting in Crocodile Bridge and finishing in Shingwedzi doing 2 wilderness trails Sweni and Oliphants. 5 weeks total in your beautiful country. 15 August to September 23. :clap: :cam:

The time will fly by....or so so I keep telling myself. Just about to send all our details to Jazil for entry on the Meets and Greets.

And so the 'Great Count Down' begins.

Enjoy the looking forward to that special day!

Thanks Xankanka...to be honest I was going to wait until it was 100 days (only 2 digits then the next day!) but I was just so excited I could not wait. That's what Kruger fever does to us all.

We will be sorry to miss you this year TessaG. It is always a complicated choice of when we can fly out and for how long..from personal choice I had hoped to move out or at least manage a 50/50 with the UK but due to personal reasons this is no longer a realistic option for us. Since we were away for Christmas last year, felt we had better make the effort and stay home this year as all our family are spread out far and wide and we are the only uniting force now. We'll be with you in spirit though!! You'll be able to look upon our trip as a recce for your own!

Looks like we might be there at the same time PeeWee!

If I remember correctly, I might have seen you in September 2014 as well.

Anyway, the count-down is ticking. Not too long anymore.
Still need to sort out my lens. (Had an accident a while back :cry: ). If the replacement converter doesn't work properly, I'll have to splash out and get the new Nikon 200-500 lens :D

Enjoy your trip, don't forget your yellow ribbon and check Meets&Greets to see who is where and when.

Have fabulous photo shoot.

Regards
Mike

Mant You're in single digits! don't worry, it'll go quickly enough. :wink:
And if you get too desperate, you're only a few hours away and can pop in for a weekend. :)
Something us foreigners cannot reasonably do. :roll:
Not only that, when we're back you're still going!

Happy countdown

Hi Mike,

March 2017 seems so far away. We live in Johannesburg so the Kruger is not that close for us, I wish it was and then I would be there every day.

Hi Samantha,

It seems just a little hop on the map, although I know that it is close to 400km from Joburg.
Less than an hour by plane to Skukuza, though.
Still easier to do that the 9200km from where I am.

But I understand that it is still a lo-o-o-o-ng way to drive.

Anyway March '17 is just around the corner :wink:

It'll be worth the wait! :thumbs_up:

Regards
Mike
