Mid way through December, we had a long weekend at the Pilansberg, but by way of a change at a fully-catered tented camp. I had stayed at the camp many years previously, so things had changed a lot, yet were much the same, if that makes sense? Arriving at the camp late in the afternoon, we were shown to our tent. Quite basic, with 2 single beds, a small table and 2 chairs, it was all we needed for the weekend. Dry ice ensured we could keep our frosties cold and all our meals were supplied, so we could both relax totally. And we did! A quick drive around before dinner, but it seemed as if the larger game had gone home for their dinner so we headed back to the camp for sundowners.

A great mix of people on the first night, including a number of foreign tourists. We sat indoors in the large communal tent for a dinner of braai and salads. The camp manager was friendly and accommodating as were the staff and everyone was soon involved on one conversation or another, the voices all creating a gentle hum, and adding to the ambience of the evening. Once the early risers had left for bed, a few stragglers took hold of some red wine and we shared stories until quite late. Paul & I were doing a self-drive, so didn’t need to get up early for the morning game drive.
