Where I stayed
Before we departed we took in the sunrise by the reservoir and took some amazing panoramic shots across the water. It was at this time Paula and Vikki decided to go for a romantic 'team wee' which turned into something more substantial on Vikki's part - who needs a cup??!!
Back on the road we headed towards Fish River Canyon with mixed feelings of relief and sadness (and that was just regarding the team wee); our last night of camping, our penultimate day on the truck (we get an air conditioned coach into South Africa as the truck is not registered to enter) and our last night with Peter the driver who has to return to Harare to prepare for the next trip
We arrived at Fish River Canyon and took numerous photo opportunities along the edge (second largest canyon in the world) this included trying to capture mid-air jumps, perched on various precipices, magical panoramas, and gazing wistfully into the middle distance - this all after a brekkie of cold beans and tinned pear halves - parp!
After driving for a further couple of hours we arrived at our destination; Felix Unite. The temperature outside felt like you were being made to constantly sit too close to the fire! The Felix Unite was a lovely way to end the truck experience. Camping on lush grass, ample power points (said in a sexy voice), phone reception, free WiFi, swimming pool and a well stocked bar - you can see why we left Lewisham for a mind expanding experience...!
Alun prepared (with our considerable assistance...) a smorgasbord of deli delights and with the provision of a selection of high quality warm boxed wines pretty soon we were all flinging ourselves in the pool. Our resident princess was attracting men like flies stuck to plastic boobs and no amount of hair swishing stopped them from buzzing! Suddenly no regard for her 'Truck Beau' and embarrassing for the rest of us to witness - as the Kiwi girls would say - 'awkward!'
The afternoon and evening flew by in a drunken haze with people playing drums and tight-rope walking on a line stretched between two trees
Q: How many pie-eyed overlanders can you fit in a three man tent?
A: 18 with space to spare, but resulting in a very annoyed Canadian tent owner....
We hit the sack but can't remember how we managed to get to our tent or what time it was...
