Pretoria to Dinokeng Game Reserve

A travel blog entry by patricia1957


... stone deaf and once she found out that the majority of us were from Australia she switched to speak perfect English! What a character! After a spot of lunch especially prepared for us at a local tavern we made our way into Dinokeng Game Reserve.

We'll of course also make contracts between us saying that is is our car even though it is in his name. Just felt awkward to buy a car and not ...
