Right Peeps now that the dung has beetled off and you are all sitting comfortable two square on your bottie ( words from a band called Small Faces) we shall beging.

I am not going to bore you with the 12 hour drive from Pinetown to Phalaborwa and the 4 hour drive from Phalaborwa to Shingwedzi unless someone wants to know about Mopani trees and their heritage.

After driving along the H-4 we turned left at Letaba onto the H-1-6 and arrived at

Where we set up camp close to the fence.

Whilst these little critters played tag in the tree next to us.

And finally got a look and nod of approval from the tree supervisor and the land surveyor.

We then went and booked in got an icecream from the shop and had a little snooze before we went exploring.

T.B.C.

Belive.
