Wednesday 10th March.
We were waiting to exit the gate at 5.30am and our first drive of the day would be to Crocodile Bridge to have breakfast with fellow forumite “Boorgatspook”
We had only travelled a few k’s along the S110 and our first sighting of the day loomed
A yellow ribbon tied to the side mirror of a bakkie.
We stopped and the other forumite backed up
It was none other than “Joekin” from J0burg and a friend
He had just driven from Johannesburg, and maybe that explained the stunned expression.
We had managed to keep this trip a secret and he hadn’t picked up on any of the clues I had dropped.
Sightings along the way included:-
A well hidden lady
We enjoyed a take away breakfast from Croc Bridge(best take away in park) and swapped sightings with Spookie
It was soon time to move on and we took the S28 and turned on to the S137 for a stop at Duke waterhole.
We eventually arrived at the Hippo Pools via S130, H4-2 and S25/27
