Hi everyone,

4 days to go before we set off on our Rambling Round the Parks Road trip. :D

We start off by staying in three of the Arid Parks; Mokala, Augrabies and Namaqua … and continue our adventure on to those not so arid; The West Coast Nat Park, Agulhas, Bontebok, Wilderness, Addo and Mountain Zebra.

Mind you, with the lack of rain on the West Coast, as well as along the Western Cape coast and into the Eastern Cape, the other parks may too be a tad arid.

Hoping for rain this week and that the fields are filled with wild flowers all the way down the West Coast. :D

If anyone is visiting WCNP on the 29th, 30th or 31st of August 2017, please drop us a PM. (The pancakes at Geelbek are delicious). It would be lovely to meet you.

Jesscan1 and Andy M
