Ending a perfect day is not only about alcohol
And for that matter, why only Kruger
I am sure that there are evenings of perfect days in the other Sanparks too
No M, the end of a perfect day in KNP is a whole experience. It is not complete without the whole 9 yards. The natural symphony provides perfect background music. The crack of the wood in the fire and the sizzle of the steak on the braai and the perfect sundowner to round it all off. Good food, great ambience. Romantic low lighting from the fire and a candle or two. Even the whine of a mozzie.
At home, I have a drink or two at a braai, but I do not have the symphony. I only have the cacophony of traffic noise and screaming neighbours or loud music and yelling children. It's just not the same.
It's only a perfect day, when it all comes together, in one package.
The hoot of an owl (or "screee" of a scops) punctuated by the whoop of a hyena and somewhere, hopefully fairly close, the roar of a lion and the cough of a leopard. The crickets and other night insects and a gentle murmur of conversation from the many fires around the camp. The sounds of the nightjars.
Of course, it's also not perfect without the smell of the african bush. At home we have the diesel fumes, and the pollution.
And of course, the perfect drink in hand. Ice clinking against the glass as its gently tipped back for another sip of whatever the perfect drink is.
Take away any one ingredient, and the recipe is a complete flop. Good days end with a braai and sundowner at home, preferably with friends and family. Perfect days end in Nature with the friends and family in close attendance on the other side of the fence. (i.e. The inmates of Kruger.)
It can be zachery same in KTP or any other SANPARK. I just haven't had that honourable experience anywhere else yet.
Thrilling and reminiscing with the family about the leopard or lion sighting, or the ellie that chased you, and what about the ostrich doing it's mating dance.
Can it get any better than that?
Conservation is not an option.
It's imperative.Leave KNP alone. Go build a hotel someplace else. Reserves are for the preservation of wildlife. Think Pink. ..
