Last night :cry:
Even if we knew we will be back,it's always with a twinge of regret we begin the last evening and it was not different in Punda Maria tented camp.
We enjoyed the dinner with a nice glass of south african wine and we stayed outside quite a long time listening to the night,trying to spot some bushbabies as I read in Anne-marie travel tale they were common visitors in Punda Maria Tented camp.
But no tail,no head,no call,no bush,no babies,no bushbabies :wink:

We slept quite well also that night.It's true that when a day in Kruger is equal to a "full life" ,you need some rest some time :sleep:


By the way, we do recommend the tent if you're staying at Punda Maria.
Some shots to give you an idea


Access to our tent (N°7,quite a long way if you have a lot of luggage)

we left the park by Punda Maria gate.

It was a winter misty morning fitting our early morning mood but still ready for new adventures.
We were not too sad as we still had 2 weeks in Africa.
