15.03.1999 - 16.03.1999
Another long day sitting in the car! We left our luxury accommodation and headed north through Dundee for a small detour to view the historic site of 1838 Battle of Blood River - interesting replica of Boer's "laager" of horse carts that aided in the annihilation of 12,000 Zulus. Stopped in Volksrust for lunch at a bakery. Continued on through thunderous surroundings, occasionally slowed by torrential down pours and loud, close lightning! Dropped through a pass to the low veld again with some nice mountainous scenery. Arrived at Kruger Backpackers at 7.00 pm for quick tea and two hours of SKY Sport with Boots 'n' All.
