June 7 – Berg en Dal

Today was the day to meet Gerda, Janine and Christy at the Skukuza golf course restaurant for lunch. I met Janine last time I was here 5 years ago, but although I’ve known Gerda and Christy for many years, this was our first meeting. I had plenty of time to get there, but I left… Continue reading June 7 – Berg en Dal

June 6 – Skukuza to Berg en Dal

Moving day again today. I was pretty much packed up last night, so all I had to do was load up the car and be on my way. First sighting soon after leaving the gate was a Giraffe crossing the road. By the time I got to the spot, he had disappeared. Next was a… Continue reading June 6 – Skukuza to Berg en Dal

May 29 – Talamati

I heard Lions roaring early this morning, but no sign or noise from them once I was on my way. The sun made a pretty decent attempt at making a nice sunrise this morning.

I got my new fridge yesterday and am very happy with it.  The delivery guys from Lockport… Continue reading December 5th

July 11th

It was a pretty cool day here today.  I’m not sure what the high was, but it was 7C this morning and now at 6:30 pm, it is 18C, so I’m not sure if it went over 20C or not. The excitement today was that the Styx pride of lions visited the Nkorho waterhole at… Continue reading July 11th

Dec 19 08 Thoughts

Well, my big plans on planting that seed paper didn’t work out yesterday.  Silly me thought the snow would melt in a couple of hours and it would only take maybe a couple more hours for the dirt to thaw out. As you can see, there is still ice on the top of the dirt… Continue reading Dec 19 08 Thoughts
