Comfort Zone

I just want to make something totally clear...
we were camping.


Here is our tent...
with added nyala


It was very cold at night...
so we needed throws and suchlike


Candles, matches...
we were living close to nature


We tried to eat organically,
living off the fruits of the land,


and everyone should experience
flowers with their granola
once in their life.


There were opportunities
for meditation and relaxation


and water therapy
to help you centre yourself.


Oh lovely, lovely Botlierskop
you have the friendliest staff
and the best sundowners in Africa.


It was so hard to leave
and we are missing you already.
Thank you.

  4. I have only ever been camping once in my life (girl guides) and I vowed never to do it again. For this I would make an exception.

  10. Now that is so the sort of camping I like and the sort of picnic! We stayed in a zoo in Australia a few years ago that had tents with beds. It also had a swimming pool and restaurant and I decided that really was the only way to do camping. Sadly I still have to do "proper" camping but "luxury" camping is fabulous!

  11. Of course you were camping. That is just the way that we do it.

    Cough.

  15. it was a very in tents experience I have to say ...

    I like to think that MissM enjoys travelling with her parents due to her father's sense of humour and witty repartee ... might be to do with the location though
