So, why not join me on an African Safari, a Safari in Magical Southern Africa? How? It's easy, simply pull up a chair, toss another log on the campfire and relax with your favourite drink in hand as the sun sets orange through the dusty haze over the western horizon.
Sit back, relax and listen to the sound of an African Night Jar and the far off roar of a lion.
While the campfire burns lower we chat about African Safari experiences, tips and advice.
We pass around pictures of places and animals that we have seen.
We also invite you to join the discussion and to share your safari experiences and photos.
Buffaloes at rest...
Kruger National Park
Then as the coals glow dull red in the darkness and we listen to the cry of a Bush Baby in the background, we talk of favourite campsites, lodges, wilderness trails and hikes that we have enjoyed.
Right, now that we have the formalities out of the way we can get down to the business of discussing the magic of a Southern African Safari!
But, since we all know the tall stories fishermen can tell...
...and because I am a fisherman, we need to back up our stories with photos of off the beaten track destinations in sunny Southern Africa such as the Baviaanskloof or camping at Agua Pesquiera overlooking the Massingir Dam in Mozambique.
We also return to old favourite safari destinations such as the Kruger National Park, Etosha, the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari.
Kruger National Park
We had a quick breakaway to the Kruger National Park in early December.
The Kruger National Park had a special running on their accommodation in selected rest camps from 1 to 9 December of up to 40% discounts.
We simply had no choice but to make use of this opportunity to take a quick trip to the Kruger.
As always, the Kruger is real treat. We enjoyed some great game viewing and bird watching Check out our photos!
On Safari in the
Richtersveld National Park
In June, we went on a long overdue Richtersveld Safari. This was one of the greatest trips we did in recent years and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The good rains in this region transformed the desert into a floral paradise.
For us, this was a pleasant surprise and an added bonus to see this normal bleak and harsh landscape so colourful.
We visited the following arid parks on our way to the Richtersveld:
These reviews of camping sites are all about sites where we enjoyed camping.
Some of them rate as luxury camps with all the amenities and facilities you can dream of.
Others are only an open space on a bank of a river with no amenities at all.
The one thing they all have in common is that special ambiance that made our stay memorable to us, no matter how rustic the experience.
Our latest African Safari Campsite Review features the Augrabies Falls National Park Rest Camp.
Augrabies Falls is a must visit destination for any tourist in South Africa, so why not camp? If camping is not your scene there are luxury chalets. But, since we are camping, I hope you will find this review helpful, just the place to park your camper! (RV)
The Augrabies Falls campsite is a typical South African National Parks Campsite with level, shady stands, clean and well maintained ablutions and as allways, a great safari destination.
