This is how I relaxed I was during the whole weekend!!

The queen celebrated her birthday in the Kalahari. So this weekend was more about the friends and less about animal sightings. :redface:

But will make up for it form Friday on!!

Just booked for September. Finally got through an hour and a half after bookings opened and not only were urikaruus and kieliekrankie fully booked, but also nossob, which I was surprised at, given all of the additional new units. Hopefully some availability will appear in the 326 days before we get there, but even if it doesn’t, we’ll have a bed to sleep in for 11nights :lol:
