Well our trip report is not ready yet but in the meantime we just wanted to say we had an amazing time on our three and a half weeks of safari in Kruger and greater Kruger.
Loved all four camps that we stayed in, a great adventure. We were always one of the first at the gate in the mornings and although we tried to avoid it, we often did not get back till six at night. We would head back towards camp and then end up detouring somewhere for lunch or breakfast, as you would all know...'lets just check out this road/loop before we go back'. Next thing you know its five pm.
We were very impressed with the camps, including all the restaurants and shops, and found everything to be quite well organised. Unlike some comments I have read we had no negatives with staff or food, although some places seemed to be better than others, we simply just loved everything. Bought quite a bit a ceramic stuff in the shops and the staff were very helpful, taking time to wrap things up and look after us, staff in the restaurants also good, its amazing how far a smile, a thank you and a bit of conversation goes.
As for the wildlife, we had some amazing sightings, you sure do see at lot more in 2 weeks rather than the five days we had last visit. We are trying to now get our photos [3000+] organised so once thats done and I have worked out the sizing thingy we will start our report. Maybe someone could advise here, should we just do one long report or is it best to maybe break it up into camps  or something like that ?? Do not want to bore people too much !!
Finally just must add our favorite sightings.... finding a lioness early morning on the S41 road then turning to see two gorgeous males laying in the grass nearby, had these two all to ourselves as they strolled along the road for half an hour before anyone else turned up. A cheetah crossing the H9 road in front of us then climbing on to the road signpost to pose for us for maybe 5 minutes, a dream sighting that I still cannot believe, lucky took about 100 photos ! Two incredible wild dog sightings on the one drive down the H1-1 early one morning, plus lots of fab hyena, bird and elephant [and tinyphant] sightings.
Met lots of wonderful and helpful people, including a few forumites, Ark and a couple of names who I may have wrong, maybe vvg..? and maybe Luislang? Another couple from Cape Town who we enjoyed a dinner with in the Satara restuarant. Also ended up staying between 2 other forumites in our bungalow at Olifants. Wow what a place that was, overlooking the river in a 'best river view' bungalow, simply stunning. We have stayed at a few great places in the world but you know that simple room on the cliff at Olifants, watching the elephants, giraffe and antelope in the river below will go down as one of the best. Same with the bungalow at Satara, enjoying breakfast on the verandah while eles, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra and impala strolled past on their way to the waterhole for drink, what could be better.
Now help please,
we thought this longer trip may satisfy our KNP and wildlife cravings, instead we are already talking about when the day will come that we may get to return.
Guess its out of our control now, we are hooked.
