Everyone is counting down!!! Including me! 23 sleeps for me until my month in South Africa.

Teaming up with Steve who I met in Kruger June 15 to share the costs of a 4x4 for 8 nights in KTP first .......then we go our separate ways in Kruger. SO excited!!! Kruger is my heaven ........and I am sure I will love KTP too.

Can't wait to meet up with Carolv and Wild Image. I am sure there will be lots of other yellow ribbons .....I will be the solo female driving in a tiny rental car (probably a Kia Picanto) poodling along at 10-15 kph and stopping for half an hour to watch a herd of zebras .......make sure to stop and say hallo :o)

So looking forward to the Christmas night at Isinkweville Isinkwe. I would believe that I will never be the same again :lol: :lol: :lol: Just let Dave know who he is taking back to his hut, will you. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Carol, I think you have done amazingly well with all that gear and I really wouldnt worry about your evening dress. 8) Fortunately us mites are very forgiving. :k Such a pity we will be missing you this trip. Safe travels and have a wonderful time with great sightings and opportunities for some magic photos.
