Woohoo! We are officially booked for 6 nights in Kruger National Park, plus 2 more nights in the lux Kapama Game Reserve in northeastern South Africa. In less than a month, we'll be driving a tiny rental car amidst elephants, zebra, rhino, lions and whatever else lets us get close in sunny (perhaps sweltering!) paradise. And we'll have AC -- both in our lodging and our rental car! I'm so excited, it feels like Christmas. Oh wait, it is! And I'm a Jew.... anywho, hooray for travel!
