The trip to Letaba from Shingwedzi would have been relatively swift if we had taken the tarred road. We decided to take the longer dirt road.
We encountered another large herd of buffalo and had constant elephant sightings…only one ellie roadblock.
Shopping excursion to the outside world.
Our food supplies had dwindled and we decided to head to the supermarkets in Phalaborwa for meat and
vegies and a bottle of coffee. This busy town is only 50k from the Letaba camp.
We also took the opportunity to catch up with an old friend Dolf who was a great help to us on our trip in 2009 when we had a medical emergency.
We were hoping to see wild dog as there has been regular sightings not far from Sable Dam. No luck, but we decided that we would travel back to the Phalaborwa gate before we moved to our next camp Satara.
The small cafe at the gate also had reasonable internet connection and they served a good coffee.
