Firm family favourites

Family camping trips can be tricky. Sitting around a campsite all day, content with taking in and appreciating the natural beauty while you do nothing more exhausting than simply relaxing and staring into the campfire, is not everybody’s cup of tea. Some campers – especially the younger generation and the little ones – prefer plenty of action, activities and facilities to keep them busy. It is precisely because they have so much to offer visitors that Forever Resorts are so popular. With resorts spread across the country there is something to suit everyone’s taste. In addition, they bear the stamp of approval from Rikus Truter, of Lekker Kampplekke.

Wild and wonderful in Botswana

A loud rumbling tummy awakens me in the dead of the night… I lie stiffly staring into the velvet darkness, then gingerly lean across, drawing my ear to my husband Glen’s stomach. No – it’s not him! I catch my breath – the realisation that a large nocturnal visitor is grazing silently outside. This is wild camping, and this is what we came for – the ultimate Botswana adventure!

Let there be light

It happens far too often that I walk into a store, pick up a hand-held spotlight and look at the specs
– only to find that one says lumens, another says lux and the last reads something about candle power or candela. What are the key differences and what should I look out for when shopping for suitable lighting solutions for my set-up? – JOHAN BRUWER.

Feed your soul

For our regular contributor, HENRY JONKER and his two sons, LIAN and JEAN, a visit to Torra Bay – which is only open to the public for two months of the year – was a bucket list destination. This fisherman’s paradise certainly did not disappoint, and neither did their farm visit to Nungubais!

You’ve been warned!

In Issue 25 we met JAN-HARM DU PLESSIS and his family as they shared their epic adventure retracing the route of the Dorslandtrekkers of the 1800s through Namibia. This was not a once-off adventure, though, and the four of them love nothing more than to explore the natural wonders of the African continent. They also have a weird fascination with road signs.
