Got back a few days ago from my Kgalagadi trip and although the Transfrontier Park itself was the focus of the trip, we always travel with the philosophy that the journey starts from home. We weren’t disappointed.

The 1st night we opted to stay at a reasonably priced private nature reserve in the Cedarberg – Gecko Creek.  An amazing find – we stayed again on the return trip and will be back for sure.

On the 2nd day we stopped at an an incredible old car graveyard in Namaqualand for a quick photoshoot. Although its only a stone’s throw from the N7 very few peeps no about it, and I’m not about to reveal its whereabouts either…

We spent the 2nd night in Pofadder – South Africa’s version of Timbuktu – and you can see the huge smile on my face for putting such a huge dent in my bucket list 😉

On the final leg to Kgalagadi we passed this really bizarre farmstall called “Die Pienk Padstal” situated in another Northern Cape nowhere town called Kakamas. It compensated a bit for AfricaBurn 2013 which Michelle and I skipped this year for the first time in years.
