Travellers x2: Krugersdorp – Glen Reenen Breakaway

When two people are travelling together, there are bound to be some things that the one didn’t enjoy quite as much as the other one. I think it’s a good idea to reflect on the trip afterwards, to learn from possible mistakes and to better plan for the next one. So… the verdict is out on our Easter holiday spent camping in the Krugersdorp Game Reserve and in Glen Reenen in the Golden Gate Highlands National Park:

High Point: The views in the Glen Reenen area.

Low Point: The rain in Krugersdorp and the wind in Glen Reenen. We could not even break in our new braai as the wind kept on blowing it over!

Comments: I would go camping with friends again – it was enjoyable.

Anything Learned: Don’t camp in the Drakensberg in autumn. A campsite with power isn’t always necessary and it keeps the noisy neighbours to a minimum.

Holiday Rating: 8/10

High Point: Camping with friends for the first time and realising that we can spend days just chatting about everything under the sun.

Low Point: Deciding that it was too cold up in the mountains to spend another day in a tent and coming home a day too soon.

Comments: Although the weather wasn’t really ideal, it was a good break nonetheless. I would definitely camp with friends again, but for next year’s Easter break I think staying in a cabana or guest house would probably be a better idea.

Anything Learned: Camping is best left for the warmer seasons. Put petrol in when the tank’s half full. We can make delicious pizzas on the braai!

Holiday Rating: 8/10
