    Hallo Kruger

    June 16, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    The 4am start was totally worth it. We get a nice African welcome by the sunrise over the beautiful bushveld just before entering the Kruger at the Orpan gate.

    Our journey to our rustic tent camp take us all the way from Orpan to Satara rest camp, then Letaba and ultimately to Tsenze. This is a 5 plus hour safari drive.

    Before we stopped Satara we came across loads of cars who claim the saw a leopard walking in the distance (or as one guys said "he was walking very quickly") after about 15 minutes of scouting the bush we decided to head on and Boom as we drove off we saw the leopard walking in the distance about 500m from where the cars were trying to see him again. He was indeed walking very quickly so we only saw him for two fleeting moments before he disappeared in the bush. None the less, its a great spot and leopards are not something you see often.

    Other than the Leopard the journey was well worth the long drive as we saw several other animals like Buffalo, Giraffe and Elephants just to name a few.

    Jou ma se kos

    June 15, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Na nie te lang road trip kom ons in Nelspruit aan waar ons nog so paar ure sit en werk by ons gastehuis. Dis darem 'n voorreg om van enige plek af te kan werk.

    Oppad uit om iets te gaan eet, toe hoor ons vir ou Jonathan op Jacaranda Dros se Donderdag special adverteer en besluit sommer om by dros die kalamari special te gaan kry. Dros is immers jou ma se kos volgens hom, haha.

    Die kalamari was baie lekker en ons kom nie te laat terug by die gastehuis nie, so leke vroeg in die bed voor more oggend se 4am ry om as die hekke oop maak in die wildtuin te wees.

    On the road again

    June 15, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    After a morning of struggling with wifi in the heart of the city yet again, we packed the car and off we went. On the road again!

    Its so nice to do a weekend getaway without having to get on a plane.

    Isabel packed us some yummy home made burgers for lunch. When she purchase a cold drink and coffee at the shop she saw their burgers were R70 per burger so packing lunch was a R140 saving. Not bad considering our burgers was probably healthier than the shops.
