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 …
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.
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.
