Marakele. Staff tops!

Unread post by Rocky Mike » Mon Jul 24, 2017 1:24 pm

Hi all

Friday afternoon we were on our way to Tlopi camp for the weekend. A kinda honeymoon....

Although I have been to Marakele before, many years ago, and knew how to get there, we followed the stupid Iphone map directions.
Result? We ended up late, in the dark, without a clue where we were. Tempers started fraying....

Then we came upon a bakkie with 2 gate personnel. They kindly collected our key from the receiption, and another member took us via shortcut to our tent.


I did not get these people`s names, bur rest assured, Marakele`s people is pretty high up on my list of dedicated Park staff.

If anybody is in a position to do so, please extend our thanks and compliments to Marakele`s gate staff again!
