About 70km out of Musina was South Africa's newest national park - Mapungubwe National Park. For more info on the park check out this website. This is where we decided to spend the weekend together. It was fantastic! The National Park itself is actually really close to both Bots and Zim - they are separated by the Limpopo River.
I had booked accommodation for the 3 of us at Leokwe Camp - a family cottage that had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room and braii area. It was perfect.

We arrived quite late in the afternoon so we decided to just relax, have some dinner and catch up.

We came across various animals. As strange as this sounds, it is hard to get your head around the fact that some of these animals are dangerous and could kill you. Lisa and I got out of the car at one stage to take some photos of these amazing baobab trees (really huge, really fantastic looking trees), and it was only after that I thought, you know maybe I shouldn't have done that as there are wild animals roaming around.

The next morning it was an early farewell as we went our separate ways - Lisa back to Musina and Mr B and I back to F'town. What a great weekend - we were looking forward to many more!!
