The Beauty of South Africa

One of the blessings of having family come visit is that we get to go places we probably never would have gone on our own. This week we stayed outside the town of Hazyview at Sabie River Bush Lodge. We highly recommend this small lodging facility. It has rondavel rooms and tented rooms. The staff was excellent. They greeted us with warm washcloths before we got out of the Bakkie and they even washed the Bakkie twice. The meals were a delight as was the atmosphere. We ate on an open air deck where we enjoyed watching monkeys play one morning at the river.

We booked a game drive with Sydney of the lodge into Kruger National Park. He was not a “professional guide” but we managed to see 4 of the big 5: elephant, leopard, Cape buffalo and lion. We had a picnic breakfast at Skukuza rest camp which seemed like a bustling community within itself.
The next day we took a side trip on the way home to Blyde River Canyon. It was absolutely gorgeous. One can’t help but appreciate the magnificence of God’s creation when traveling around this canyon. We visited Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the three rondavels and God’s window.
Lord, thank you for the blessing of being able to explore some beautiful parts of South Africa with my parents.
