Umlani Bush Camp to Johannesburg

Umlani Bush Camp to Johannesburg via Mount Sheba

Yesterday we reluctantly departed Umlani Bush Camp to make our way back to Johannesburg with a one night stop at a lodge in Mount Sheba on the panoramic route and then arriving  back to Jo-Burg today at about 2:30 pm. The drive was very scenic and was quite similar in ways to the interior of British Columbia with arid hills, sweeping mountain views and then unfortunately as we neared Jo-Burg, a very thick smog of coal smoke from a nearby power station. We left 30+ C weather in Kruger and Umlani Camp to a temperate 17 C in Jo-Burg. We’ll spend 4 nights here, drop off our Toyota Corolla, pick up our Toyota TRAX 4 x 4 HILUX camper, do some grocery shopping and then head out to the great wide open for 6 weeks of camping, lodging, self drive safaris and adventure in Namibia and Botswana. Before we enter Namibia we’ll spend a night in Kuruman in the Northern Cape Province and then 2 nights camping in the South Africa side of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the Kalahari Desert. Once we enter Namibia we’ll have spent over 6 weeks travelling through South Africa.

Below is a pic of our home for the next 6 weeks.
