So we drove from Pilansberg for four hours for nothing, turned around and two hours later camped by invitation for free behind the Wag-n-Biekie Bar in Groot Marico where it poured providing an excellent lightning and thunder storm plus a very soggy tent by morning.
After some discussion we decided not to visit Marakele National Park as it has very few roads drivable by a passenger car and we don’t have 4×4 so blew that off and instead got a very early start back to Pretoria, and thus we ended up driving in circles.
Because it looked like rain we only set up one tent and the tarp just in case. This camp is owned by the local water affairs and could really use some maintenance. The bathrooms were falling apart and the grass definitely needed mowing but the view was superb.
