Highlights of this day were:
We arrived at our “home” for the next 2 nights and were charmed by the sight of a traditionally built settlers type house designed in the old colonial style , with a tin roof, a wide cool stoop all around for sitting outside, a pool and large acres of lawn running down to the Limpopo River. There were 2 large Mashatu trees to give shade to both us and the horses, and a cold beer on offer from the ever ready, ever smiling Tips. We ate a scrumptious lunch and retired to our quiet spots for some personal contemplation of Africa. The horses, all tied in a line with huge haynets and a well-deserved feed looked happy, cool after a thorough and meticulous wash down and check over. They are well looked after and very content with their lot, as are we.
That afternoon we went on an evening game drive for obligatory sundowners, enjoying a new area, with lots to see, both animal, vegetable and mineral. Our guide and driver Buti, was ably assisted by Tsaone and West, found us lots of exciting things to see, including a darling little jennet and 3 rattling porcupine spotted at night on the way back to camp.
