I've been reading posts on this forum for a while but only just got around to creating a profile.
There is a ton of useful and interesting content on this site so thanks to all the contributors for taking the time to share.

My trips background so far...
-My first safari trip was a 3 day visit to Kruger with my Nan :-)
-I got the wildlife bug and then did an organised tour to Kenya inc. Samburu and Masai Mara
-While on a gap year I did a 3 month overland trip across East and Southern Africa which took in most of the big National Parks (albeit briefly)
-I added on another Kruger trip for a week after the overland trip which I loved (first self-driving experience)
-I returned to SA for another self-drive to Kgalagadi
-My most recent trip was a two week Kruger trip last year
-My next trip will be to Namibia inc Etosha next Feb

I like the self-drive experience and really enjoy the photography element of my trips which has developed more over the last few years. Check out my website for more info/pics....

So that's my intro, thanks for reading!
Rob

Glad you joined the forum.  Etosha in Feb--I'll be interested in what you find.  I believe there will be flocks of Blue Cranes.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! I wrote a trip report there about my two week Kruger trip last year. Do you think I can link to it from here or is that a no-no on this site?

@Robjwilli. Welcome, and you can link it, no problem. More will read it and comment if you post it here, but it's fine. Just post the link in trip reports with a summary (and maybe highlights).

Waiting again... for the next time again

Welcome, and I have to say that being on this site has changed my life for the better. So many other safari talkers feel the same as I do.
