My recent visit to the Kruger National Park
included time at the Jock Explorer Camp
The view from my tent.
General Manager Louis and his team are trying to recreate
the feel of an “old style” explorer camp as it would have been
in the early part of the 20th century…
All I can say is that those pioneers WISHED for something like this!
And they would have longed to have Sam cooking for them.
This my “surprise” breakfast…
a delicious cheese omelette.
From left to right:
Dumi, Camp Manager. Lazarus, Game Ranger Manager.
Johnny,Food and Beverage Manager…and last,but by no means least…
Sam,Executive Chef and Kitchen Manager.
The bushveld ” newspaper”…
we could follow these tracks to see what species had been visiting the camp
Elephant, lion, hyena and leopard were some of the identified tracks
This box is VERY special.
You load hot coals into the tray at the bottom and use the upper portion to bake bread,
or make toast!
Evening contemplation spot…
Seeing there is no Internet or cell phone connectivity at the camp,
I had to revert to good “old fashioned” writing.
