We left Johannesburg at 5am on Tuesday morning, fetched Leonie in Pretoria, and then headed to Nelspruit. Breakfast was at Milly's, and then we pushed on to the Kruger National Park, checking in to Bergendal Camp. It was great to meet new friends - there were 8 ladies in our group, some from Port Elizabeth.

We stayed at a private camp for an extra 2 days after the trail ended,
some time to rest and recuperate after a really tough walk in the bush

Yep, we're considering doing another trail next year with the girls again.
