I'll check it out when I am up there in mid-October. It sounds great and I am sure it will be very well-supported, as it is at the junction of two busy roads, near several of the larger camps.

Tshokwane Transformed

Unread post by Andy M » Sat Oct 01, 2016 8:54 pm

It has happened!
Tshokwane.
A Kruger icon and arguably one of the most visited and popular picnic spots, frequented by both local and interntional visitors, has morphed into the 'Tshokwane Trading Post and Picinic Spot'.
What an awsome transformation. :clap:
The Tourvest team have done an excellent job by transcending Tshokwane into a venue that will become a 'Must visit' spot and I am sure that will be loved by all that knew the 'old' Tshokwane.
This morning Jesscan1 and I immediately fell in love with the concept of what Tshokwane was in days gone by.
Tshokwane has been transformed into today's version of the respite that the period travellers would look forward to after the long trek between Skukuza, Lower Sabie and Satara.
The yellowed pages of history have been turned back to the glory days of the trading post when weary travellers were joyed at the prospect of arriving at the staging post.
I can just imagine the ladies and gents of yesteryear relaxing with tin mugs of tea or 'moer' koffie while relaxing on the opulent couches outside the store while their provisions were being replenished.
The pictorial essay that follows is a short glimpse of what one can expect when 'outspanning' at the 'Tshokwane Trading Store and Picnic Spot'.
Photos and collage courtesy of Jesscan1 will follow tomorrow when we have access to stable internet.
