On the Saturday it was great to see Daan and Tillie Loubser who gave us a surprise visit in their 130 Defender.
Jan, the owner, provided us with a massive supply of fire wood and we had wonderful evenings of "lekker gesels" till late into the night We woke up in the mornings to the sound of a Fish Eagle’s calling and the sight of warthog family coming for breakfast.
As Paradors reserve is "self drive" we made a few excursions into the bush on fairly good middlemannetjie roads where one can see buffalo, giraffe, kudu, blue wildebeest, impala, zebra and many more.
Ed also took his kayak and managed to catch quite a few small bass albeit the cold water that kept the big ones at bay.
