Weekend in Pilanesberg

By mid-February, the Wild de Wets were suffering from extreme bush withdrawal symptoms. So, with our “monochrome memories” from a visit to Pilanesberg National Park in December lined up for publishing at the same time, we headed back to Pilanesberg for aย quick weekend bush-fix, camping at Bakgatla Resort for the Saturday night before Valentine’s Day.

It was noticeable that the Park received some much needed rain since our previous visit, evidenced by flowing streams, fuller dams and greener vegetation. We hope that more falls before the end of the summer rainy season, and that it will be enough to sustain the fauna and flora through the dry winter.

      You hit the nail on the head in that it looks like early spring, Janet – problem is that should have been in September and October last year; by February the veld should have been much, much more lush. We’re now heading into autumn and winter, the dry season, and hopefully the late rains was enough to carry the wildlife and vegetation through the leaner months, with fingers crossed that the next rainy season won’t also fail…
