June 8 – Berg en Dal

It was another foggy morning today, but it soon cleared as the sun came up. It had obviously been clear last night with this beautiful moon showing itself above my bungalow.

June 7 – Berg en Dal

Today was the day to meet Gerda, Janine and Christy at the Skukuza golf course restaurant for lunch.

Although I had seen a sign indicating that a bridge on the road along… Continue reading August 12 Berg en Dal, Kruger National Park
