LOL! There is an easy website: which you can use for countdowns, calculating time between two dates and more.
If you are on Facebook you have more options. It's there as well, and remembers your last countdowns. So you don't need to fill in the dates/times again.
Not posting much here anymore, but the photo's you can follow here There is plenty there.

Feel free to use any of these additional letters to correct the spelling of words found in the above post: a-e-t-n-d-i-o-s-m-l-u-y-h-c

I have known for over a year that I will be visiting the Kruger Park , however that visit is still over two years away . That's a countdown of well over 3 years . That's a long time but finances dictate it is so , and it will be a seven week holiday in South Africa with a fantastic five weeks in the Park . Really looking forward to it - understatement of the year .

318 Days! Not going to be an easy wait, however.
A few days ago, a television celebrity was talking about her recent trip to Kruger (Private camp, I am sure) and she said she got tired of seeing elephants. Our youngest, who is absolutely obsessed with ellies said, "Dad, how could anyone get tired of ellies??!! That's just wrong!!"

Hey everyone, we have been missing from this wonderfull forum for some time now, we have now downsized our home in Australia in preparation for more frequent visits to our favourite place on earth.....Kruger.

We will be returning to Kruger later this year in July for nearing 4 weeks and like everyone else posting here, we too can't wait and already counting the days.

Like all of our other Kruger trips, we look forward to those yellow ribbons and friendly chats, whether it be out and about or over a beer and braai in a rest camp or picnic spot, perfect.
