It’s a 210km drive from Addo‘s Main Rest Camp to the gates of the Mountain Zebra National park, and we arrive just after 13:00. The rest camp lies about 12km into the Park, but it’s hot and most animals are hiding from the midday summer sun and we don’t see much of them before reaching the camp.
After checking in we make our way to our allotted unit, cottage 20, and while Marilize and I unpack the car and settle into our accommodation Joubert is already out exploring and enjoying the birdlife in camp.
Time to go exploring as a family, and off we go to the Rooiplaat and Ubejane Loops before returning to camp three hours later.
2020 draws to a close with a beautiful sunset over the hills of the Mountain Zebra National Park
The last sighting of the year: a Raucous Toad next to the swimming pool in camp.
We posted a special feature about Mountain Zebra National Park following a previous visit, if you’d like to learn more about this special destination.
