Early start (last but one to leave!) for 360k trip to Sabie. We all left at different times over a period of 90 minutes but somehow contrived to arrive at Sabie within 10 minutes of each other. In SA you can only buy spirits and beer at licensed outlets which are few and far between, especially compared with the UK. After 2 hours driving we spotted one of these ‘Bottle Shops’ at Dulstroom only to find 5 of our group already there!
Went through the extrordinary scenic ‘Long Tom’ pass, nearly ran over baboons and saw wilderbeast. Arrived here at ‘Merry Pebbles’ and enjoyed their ‘hot pool’. Evening meeting somewhat ribald because of some peoples’ navigation abilities.
Things are getting more scenic, and more African. Tomorrow we appproach Kruger through the Blyde River canyon.
