Joburg and Kruger

A travel blog entry by neoandjames


After surviving the night at our Joburg hostel, where we were exposed to anyone and everyone down a dodgy back passage, we boarded yet another mini-van to drive to KNP. Loooong drive. Arrived at a Cheetah sanctuary just in time before I went mental at being cooped up. Seeing the animals, which were bred to sell and to release to the wild, was a …

The end.

Siamo rientrati dal Mozambico, questa e' l'ultima notte in Sud Africa. Domani ci aspetta il viaggio di rientro.

L'appuntamento e' per il 2013 a Kosy Bay.

Father City - Land of Industry

    Nonostante Graham sia gentilissimo e disponibile, la struttura non e' cosi' interessante come descritto sulla guida. Il letto "matrimoniale" e' piccolo e le coperte sono dei fazzoletti. La cucina ha pochi piatti e tazze, nemmeno molto pulite. In genere sono sempre disponibili bustine di tea, nescafe', latte e zucchero per gli ospiti, ma qui non c'e' nulla.
    Nella descrizione si parla di vasca jacuzzi, sauna, bagno turco: la vasca idromassaggio non si e' vista e le altre strutture sono in disuso.
    Insomma... per una notte, ma non di piu'.
