2020.... what a year!!

Posted on May 2, 2020 at 1:20 AM Comments comments (0)

As we all know 2020 has been a testing time for all of us, right across the world, however, it started for us back in January. For those who are unaware,  Bob had a heart attack & cardiac arrest  while we were on holiday in Victoria.

Like many people when having a heart attack,  Bob thought it was a bout of bad indegestion, and being unfit, so didnt act on it.  But, after the actual heart attack on the Thursday night, and not doing anything about it,  Saturd...

As we all know, all good things must come to an end, now after 10 weeks,Joseph and Nairesho have gone home.

Continuing from our last note,  One of Josephs greatest highlights was finally meeting our son Nathan, whom he had been waiting to meet for many years,... and now they got to meet Nathan, Ina and their 2 boys. Over the few days we spent many special times together, one of them taking the ferry boat in & our of Brisbane. South Bank was a surprise for them seeing a beach an...

Well,  after a huge delay in updating this website,  i can now tell you that YES,  we finally managed to get Joseph & Nairesho over here...... after MUCH frustration and effort i might add.  Their initial  visa's were declined due to some errors in the application, so i went on and filled out and entirely new application  and finally got it through with just 2 weeks before their travel dates to depart.!!  Then,  one of their flights had been cancell...

Our final days for 2018. Selling Huberta!

Posted on August 1, 2018 at 9:00 PM Comments comments (0)

The last third of our trip this year was to sell Huberta, (the camper).   Amazing how a vehicle could rake up so much emotion when you go to say goodbye to it.... but it was true.

On our last night at Mabula,  we saw Nightcam pick up a great video of the Genet who came through again, and actually stopped and looked at the camera this time, we were pretty stoked with that.   On our trip into Bela Bela, for supplies, we actually met the previous owners of Huberta....

As we sleep.... and other game drive excitement.

As we sleep, the night time critters come to visit our camp. The first time we have used our new NIGHT CAMERA and it’s great to wake up and see who comes around. See the 1st night cam video in the video page.

We have bumped slowly over corrugated tracks, traversed over sandy dunes, been out in the bush most of the time, and poor Huberta (our expedition camper) getting scratched and beaten by bushes and branches has rolled along strong every inch of the way. She is a good litt...

Well here we are again. Not planning on visiting Kenya this time, but threw it in at the last month. Only here for 2 or 3 weeks to visit the families before heading back to South Africa and Botswana for some serious safaris.!!

Short stop in south Africa to pick up our camper and get the 2 new fridges installed that we brought over from Australia with us; this job is being done while we fly to Kenya just to say hello to all our friends there and do a little bit of shopping for our galler...

The last leg before heading home.

We ended up spending a full week with our in-laws on the coast, had a wonderful relaxing time catching up again after a couple of years.  Also caught up with our Belgium boys again spending another week with them, visiting Plattenburg on the coast all the way back to Hermannus to see the whales.... sadly, the weather was so rough that day the whales stayed out under the deeper water for the duration.

On the way back to Jo'burg we  did not expect to see the SNOW on the mountain...

chilling out in South Africa

The final stretch......

It took us while, but we both got over the flu bug, or what ever it was after spending 3 days resting at a lovely place with a tuscan feel just down the road a bit from Berlin Falls.  Graskop is one of Bobs favourite towns, usually cause he has a antique store that he is fond of... but also, there are some stunning areas to look out of, one being Gods window, and the areas around it, which are full of scenic spots and waterfalls.   Next  we arrived...
