According to Wikipedia, the term nostalgia describes a longing for past eras and their personalities and events, especially the "good old days" of a few generations back recast in an idyllic light.
We started visiting the Kruger Park in 1995 and since then there have been many changes - most good but some not good. We used to love eating at the restaurants - the food was good with great service and the waiters had many exciting bush-tails to tell us!

"It's 764 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road.
