Re: Finally back to five favourite parks (The 2 SA addicts from Holland)

Thank you for your kind words! :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: It has been raining a lot during the night, but fortunately there is no sign of flooding. We walk to the reception and book another night in the cabin. Nothing wrong with the temperature, a nice 22 degrees C like in Dutch summers...

Thank you so much! :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: Later that afternoon (it's still dry) we drive to the Malachite birdhide.
