Warren and Allison Lentoor were married at the Wesley Methodist Church in Komani recently Picture: SUPPLIED COUNTRY STYLE WEDDING: Jessica le Roux and Bryan Hansen were recently married at Olive Rock in Ceres Game-filled trip to the Kruger Group of Komani bowlers have a ball in the Park CHUX FOURIE BOWLING members of the Queenstown Golf Club were joined by former members Serfie and Lucille Serfontein of Jeffrey’s Bay, Gerrie and Marina Marais of Tarkastad and Lorraine Hart of Gonubie recently for a trip to the Kruger Park. The cars left Komani together and, after a very long drive, arrived at Waterval Onder to spend the night at a guest house. The next morning they entered the park at its southern end via Crocodile Bridge to spend the following three nights in chalets at Lower Sabie. Once settled in, each group was free to do as they pleased in terms of times and routes to follow, but they all had good sightings of game including large herds of giraffe and huge herds of elephant which one traveller described as looking “like a t rain”, prides of lions, vultures and many other birds and a special treat BLOCKING THE WAY: In spite of his youth, this baby baboon sitting at the side of the road in the Kruger Park was totally unfazed by passing traffic Picture: GERHARD ODENDAAL was seeing the elusive leopard. For their morning and midday meals each carload made their own plans, but the whole group got together in the evenings, most often for a braai. So, in typical South African fashion, the men gathered around the fire and occasionally turned the meat while the women members of the touring party took it in turns to do the work. From there they moved on for two nights in the relatively newly-established Talamati bush camp further north, which is really “in the bush”. There are no shops or other “mod cons” but there are comfortable chalets – and it is very peaceful. The camp is situated near waterholes, hides and a dam where one can sit quietly and contentedly watch the comings and goings. After that they spent two nights in the well-known Pretoriuskop camp, which some might regard as back to civilisation as there are shops, a petrol station and so on. While there they had great sightings of leopard, hyena, rhino, hippos, crocodiles and vultures galore, among many ot h e r s . Faan and Antjie Corbett love the Kruger and go there often, so they were able to give valuable advice, resulting in a well-thought-out, well-organised, well-planned and thoroughly memorable h o l i d ay. The animals they saw were sleek, the vegetation was lush and while some rivers were dry there were plenty of waterholes and the dams had water, all adding to the pleasure. For the return trip each carload “did its own thing” with regard to route, times and so on and they meandered home after a wonderfully relaxing holiday, filled with fun, laughter and wonderful memories.
