    The Mahonie Loop

    May 13, 2019 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    We were earlier than usual - for us...
    Left camp before 8 and drove the Mahonie Loop widershins. Lots of wildlife both fauna and avian. Specials: a young elephant on his/her own right next to the road. We asked where Mom was, whereupon he trumpeted like a full-grown male. Mom responded - on the other side of the road. We nearly jumped out of the car, and were out of there lickety-split. Then there was a bateleur perched in a baobab right next to the road, but he/she flew off before we could get a picture 🤔Read more

    Punda hide at camp

    May 12, 2019 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Once unpacked and rested we walked down to the hide - about 5 pm.
    Nothing there except a few three-banded plovers, turtle doves, blacksmith lapwing and far away on a dead tree two marabou storks. After that all the stuff in the pictures! The ellies were fascinating - they all came with trunks in the air, sniffing the camp and all the people...

    Kokanje to Punda Maria

    May 12, 2019 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Finally! We left Kokanje about 8:30. Considered the R101 vs N1 and decided on the highway. Lots of traffic coming south, but not much going north. Polokwane was awful - road construction and trucks slowed us down. We had lunch at 11 at the Capricorn toll gate Steers - toasted sandwich! Next stretch not too bad. Thohoyandou was very slow - 60 all through Venda. Finally got to Punda after 3. Time for a cool drink. Granite rock north of Polokwane, weaver nests at Steers, Juanita at Steers, Venda village, PundaMaria gate, Having a drink!Read more
