  • I belong to the Kruger Sightings Group – but my ADVICE TO YOU is not revolve your days around the sightings. In our experience the early morning sightings have moved on by 9 – 10am (always exceptions to this rule). People are inclined to rush to the destination of sighting – missing what the bush has to offer on the way – your own sightings – and often the animals HAVE moved on. Kruger Sightings is on Facebook (where you can get the link to join the WhatsApp Group or the number is +27 79 664 6029 / +27 78 294 4769

If you have any questions don’t hesitate ask – if I don’t have the knowledge , I will find find out for you ……

I am a child of Africa, born in beautiful Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and grew up on a beautiful Tobacco Farm. I've moved many many times and do not really know where I want to put my forever roots down. I have fun doing everyday things away from my home, trying to see the wonderment of life through the eyes of a child. A day out, weekend away, week away...... And months' travelling hold magical memories and events. These are what make me who I am - cautious, adventurous, fun loving & hungry to discover colours, countries, geography, cultures and experiences... and I'm normal too ... tiring travel makes me frowny too sometimes. .... With my lovely life partner (Chris), passport, medical kit, credit card I go..... wherever the wanderings take us..........
