45 degrees, the sun is burning the earth. The warm breeze almost feels like sauna. I wanted to take the road that is less used and left the freeway some time ago. Suddenly I am somewhere between public and private national parks. Next to me, a zebra is grazing. I am alone on this gravel road. I wonder how long my little Suzuki will endure and I’m glad that the streets didn’t see rain in a while.

After some time I arrive at my destination: the Woodbury Tented Camp in the Amakhala Game Reserve. In contrast to other accomodations, there is still an adventurers vibe in these tents – in most of the private parks luxus-lodges are more common. But even here I enjoy some convenience – there is a bathroom, a real bed, even heating matrasses to stay comfy during cold bush nights.

I’m staying for 3 nights and sign up for all activities that bring me out to the African bush: twice a day we have a game drive (a trip with the jeep), I do a walking-trail, a night drive and a horse trail.

The experience is overwhelming.

Here the pictures.
