Needless to say it’s taken a few days to get everything together and for things to return or slow down to a mild panic.

I’ve been invited to attend a wedding in Modimolle Limpopo at Kuthaba Bush Lodge. Which had been experiencing temperatures in the high 30’s 38 degree’s with zero humidity is something which may cause near brain aneurysm for someone who’s used to a cosy 70% humidity at the coast. ┬áThe heat was soon extinguished by torrential downpours for the next two evenings with around 80mm of rain over the next few hours.

A trip with a slight difference and very different attire, needless to say it certainly didn’t affect the chances of finding some really interesting species of animals along the way.

Weddings are pretty tough, roughing it in swimming pools for ants for lack of a better description.

Now that I’ve almost recovered from that I think it’s time to head up North this weekend:
