Travel in the time of Covid – Day 2 Warmwaterberg

We could not lie in late this morning as the sun rises early and the weather is perfect. It is, however, still quite cool in the evenings – well to South Africans it’s cool. If you come from cooler climes you might think it’s just perfect.

After our morning coffee we took to the warm waters and then went to the restaurant for breakfast which we had on the deck. The Earl had an omelette which was deliciou and I had scrambled eggs, bacon and tomato – just superb.

The day was spent walking around the campsite, watching the birds, swimming and just relaxing. I know that the campers and caravanners reading my blog want to know exactly what the facilities are like so I took a few photographs. Also here is a link to Warmwaterberg

The Camp Site

The loos are rustic and have a washand basin outside each
You can use as much water as you like for a deep roman bath or a shower
Peacocks are all over the camp. They are beautiful if a little noisy!

There are lovely walks you can take around the camp if you are feeling energetic. We have done the 7km one into the mountains in the past but did not do so this time. It was enough to take a few short walks around the camps and to watch the birds that enjoy the succulents and other indigenous plants that grow abundantly

Karoo Thrush
This beautiful hibiscus attracts the sunbirds. I am not sure which sunbird this is. Probably a greater doubled collared female or non breeding male.
Cape White-eye (Witogie)
Male Cape Canary
Female Cape Canary

Long-billed Crombec
Bikes begging to be ridden
It’s a beautiful place
Most unusual and really stunning
The plants are stunning – the bird agree
The pools are really lovely

Once again we had dinner at the restaurant. The Earl had the ribs and I had the lasagne. The views across the valley – priceless!

I am making the most of the South African Lifestyle and hope with my blog to share some of the adventures my husband and I are having in our retirement. We live at the Southern Tip of Africa in the small coastal town of Struisbaai. Earl and I have a Gecko off-road caravan and we travel around South Africa frequently. We are bird and wild life enthusiasts so are often in game reserves.
