Sorting through my photos of weekends in the Kruger over a period of at least 30 years I decided to share some. Been visiting the Kruger since I was 16 years old with my parents. After getting married introduced my wife and kids to the Kruger. I have seen many a change take place in the Kruger some good and some not to good. Kruger gate was non existent and Orpen gate was deemed inaccessible. Certain times of the year the northern areas was closed due to road conditions and flooded rivers.

I like hearing your stories of old Kruger the way you remembered it. Things have changed over the years but it is still a fantastic park to visit. Thanks for sharing your pics and stories with us Lourens.
