Game Galore
August 27, 2016 - Sun City, South Africa
      August 27   We’’ve had a lovely day today!   Up very early and after a quick cup of coffee and a rusk, we went into the Pilanesberg Game Reserve which is next door to the Bakgatla Camp Site.  It only cost us R60!!  Amazing!  What a pleasure to be charged Pensioners rates.   We headed for a water hole and hide quite close to the gate and had a pleasant hour watching the birds and a large herd of wildebeest and zebras and hartebeest come in to drink.  The water hole was very...

On Our Own again
August 26, 2016 - Rustenburg, South Africa
      August 26   We all said our farewells early this morning and we set off for the Pilanesberg Game Reserve which is on our way South, about 500 km from Mapungupwe.   The map showed a straight tar road without many obstructions.  However, what they didn’t mention was the state of the R510.  To say it is potholed is an understatement.  It is so degraded that in parts there is no road at all and traffic has made a path along the side of the official road.   This all meant that our...

An Interesting Day
August 25, 2016 - Thohoyandou, South Africa
    August 25   Today has been a very long but very interesting day.   We were up before sunrise as we had to be at the Reception area by 7 to meet our guide. And the drive from our camp is a good 45 minutes.  Added to our woes was the fact that there was no water at all in the camp this morning.  We think elephants may have stomped on the pipes that feed the camp.  We certainly heard them carrying on last night – lots of trumpeting and squealing.  We also heard lions and hyenas and...

Back into S Africa
August 24, 2016 - Thohoyandou, South Africa
      August 24   We decided to leave Botswana at the Pontdrift Border post.   This meant a long dusty drive today along some good road but some of the roads were very degraded and also there were a couple of very soft sandy dry river beds to cross.  The scenery was lovely, however, especially towards the end when large sandstone outcrops started appearing and numbers of huge baobab trees could be seen.  There was also a lot of game around and when crossing one river bed we met a...

A lazy day
August 7, 2016 - Mafikeng, South Africa
      7 August   Lovely to have a lay in for a change.  The night was cold but we were snug in our tent and woke to the sound of the sparrow weavers chattering outside.   We made a little fire to boil the kettle and had a leisurely breakfast all on our own in the bush.   Still no hot water, but the repair crew arrived and started to work on it.   Then by car into Mafikeng which is a dusty frontier town but big enough for shops to be open on Sunday – something you wouldn’t find in...
