After a wonderful New Year’s breakfast and lunch we left for Pretoriuskop.

On the way we passed another Big Brown Job. Tawny Eagle?

I’m sure we saw lots more, but I stopped keeping my KNP Holiday Diary (the cute one you can buy in the shops) on the 1st. :slap:

So we arrived at Pretoriuskop where we stayed for 2 nights. The last time I stayed here was 40 something years ago. :big_eyes:

We stayed in one of the little BG2 bungalows, so we rented a cutlery and plates hamper at Reception, which became an instant hit in our two-person household. (We already booked several kitchen-less bungalows for our next trip)

The bungalows on the other side of the lawn were especially popular with this kind of tourist:

Perhaps designing the food storage and waste area within easy reach of monkeys and baboons had something to do with that. :hmz:

Anyway, we enjoyed the vervets antics. More later …

Going through my photos in Lightroom, I realise we only stayed in Pretoriuskop for one night. Good that it seemed like two though. gigglesmile2.gif

The next morning we treated ourselves to breakfast at the Pretoriuskop restaurant. Yum. And went off for a short drive. We came across a HUGE mail lion, lying just beside the road.

Zzzzz

The traffic was hectic though, one lady almost drove into the lion. After taking a few quick pix, we left the scene. Not our cup of tea.
