Lil adventure in Kruger...

We were on a dirt road in the Kruger Park (you can fit Wales in there a couple of times, to give you an idea of the size of the park), we were following my brother, whose car overheated and broke down.

No aircon.
2 adults, 2 kids.
No phone reception of course.

Dirt road, not a main (tar) one, so it might be hours till someone drives through. You cannot get out your car unless you are wanting to be on an animal's dinner platter.

We pulled up right next to them, they passed the kids through their window into our car, they ran (like a bat outta hell) from their car into ours, and we all (snugly) drove to the nearest camp, which thankfully is the main camp in the park, with a tow truck!

Being in the wild has certain dangers alright.

    That little adventure would have scared me silly. How fortunate there were two cars. Diane

  2. Yes Diane, that was fortunate indeed!!! Was quite scary to be honest, the thought of being out there only in one car. But we were all together and it turned out well thankfully. Someone was watching over us ;) xxx
