@ ‪#‎Krugerholics‬ It is Friday, and your fairy godmother appears to grant you a visit to Kruger for the weekend, but only one camp - which camp would it be, and why?

The last camp site on the recent Lonely Bull Backpack trail......on the banks of the Letaba River so easy access to water and even a 'wallow'....hippos, ellies, etc around......Bliss!

Shing will work for me, bat guano and all. "Old world charm" did it for me, Grantmissy. So very apt. Also the closest place I've ever come to seeing my life flash before me but that's another story.
The simple rule to follow with all animals is one of respect.
