This was our base for a week. A gated Time-Share resort developed on a golf course. The serviced bungalows were well appointed. From here we drove our hire car [Nissan X Trail] to nearby Kruger Park, and the surrounding countryside and towns.

I hope to make it home by tomorrow, but this is South Africa after all and there may be no escape. The reminders that you are in a developing nation are many once you get out of the inner part of the cities and you see the shanty towns where many of the locals live in the their corrugated tin walls and roofed houses. Trash service is an apparent luxury and ...
