    Hey guys. I moved the Red Bus tour day event a week earlier. I only mention it here because a few of you had posted about the clash with this event. So hopefully one or two of you will now be able to attend.

    Hey Pierre. Are there restrictions on the number of tents / vehicles per camp site? is there a site / link where I might find all these details please. tx.

    June 18, 2013

    • Pierre L.

      Hi Uni,as far as I know there is only restriction of 6 people per campsite with one car,extra cars are R62 per car.We wont be able to put up too many tents as the sites are not that big.I will discuss this with all when we have a meetup.I think we must do that on the 30th June.

      I am in GTown then but I am sure Stewart can sort as it's his tent. We are obviously going to have to pay for additional vehicles.

      June 19, 2013

  • Peter M.

    Ok, I have paid R411. Pierre - I don't have your email address or cell number to send payment confirmation to - can you please send me the details?

    I spoke to Erik, and he said he will make payment later today.

    June 6, 2013

  • Pierre L.

    Closer to the time we can get together and discuss what we have available for camping and what food we going to need.If everyone wants to have a get together earlier we can make arrangements.Let me know how everyone feels on that.

      i think the most important thing is who's available to a) provide a vehicle and b)drive - we'll obviously split petrol and tolls and stuff.

      June 6, 2013

    • Jennifer

      Happy with that approach Pierre. Uni I am happy to drive - was going to take my car which is really only good for one other and Stewart has that spot as he is providing the tent. I could probably put one more in but I have a 2 door and the view from the back wouldn't be great when we are looking at the leopard with cubs on a kill. I think Stewart has the Taj Mahal of tents so there is probably space in there for someone else.

      June 7, 2013

  • Peter M.

    Also, we discussed the dates, the location, the fact that there is camping, but not what each person is expected to bring? Things like utensils, food, drinks, camping equipment etc.

    • Peter M.

      Trying to get hold of Erik to confirm. May only know tomorrow.

    Reminder to those who have not paid yet..Need to pay by 5th...Our reservation needs to be paid or we lose it..

    i've just paid, should reflect in a few days. I'm making the assumption that we pay per person and not per site, ie if there's less than 6 ppl we have to pay more? if so please wait to confirm numbers before you go ahead.

    • Jennifer

      Payment R225 made - note I have a wildcard

    Is this gonna happen even if we dont' have 6 or will we need to pay more?

    May 30, 2013

    • Pierre L.

      Will still happen,we either have to pay in to make up the difference or get somebody to take their place.Payments must be in by 5th June for those that are going.

      May 30, 2013

  • Pierre L.

    Can we get payments in by latest 5 June please.Thanks

    May 27, 2013

    May 17, 2013

    hey guys, i just chatted with pierre this morning and it seems that this weekend is fully booked - apparently it's school holidays or something. Pierre will post the info, dates, prices etc. as soon as he can. Once we can get dates finalised that suit the majority of ppl we can go from there. Tx.
