A wonderful moment I will never forget.
We drove away feeling very honoured and back to Pretoriouskop to pack in the morning all ready to put our stuff in the car
The maid whose name was Sara Sanbo at Pretoriouskop came to say goodbye as we were about to pack the car the guy who empties the bins came to see us and tell us our car had a puncture. I’d recommend them both for good service. It took a while to change the tyre (lots of huffing and puffing) Then off we set to get the tyre fixed at Skukuza .At the gate we saw our bush braai guide, he had a day off lots of goodbyes from him handshakes and hugs all round. He might not have been that well informed on Ground Hornbills but he was very sweet.
The temperature was rising as we were late leaving, but on the way we had a few sightings…
A giraffe link
A buffalo which was the only one we saw this trip link
Guinea Fowl link
As we arrived in the car park to book in at reception a YR drove by attached to a white Landie It was DBs and Hawk Big hello’s all round
We booked in and off to find the accommodation
From the stoep I could see the Selati Bridge link
mitch the moose approved of the view link
and there had been bats (evidence on the table… more of them… or at least one of them later
We did a short drive and met
and Chameleon link
who we managed to save from the wheels of oncoming cars, by parking across the road to allow the little green person to carry on his journey.
Off to the Braai at the Diplomatic Camp where I met lots of mites and didn’t manage to say hello to all.
Mods and SANParks staff were greeting all and handing out goodies. Which included Shirts, hats, and lanyards
SANParks did the forum proud they supplied and served the pap n sous and salad etc and they didn’t stop smiling all evening
Recognising people and chatting around the braai was great.
I have another confession …….I forgot my camera but my friend managed to take one of our hosts
Big applause for them all
