Is it legal? Well, no one has told us otherwise and we will only ever leave a wild campsite as we found it.
It comes with it’s positives and negatives:
We get to do pretty much what we want, when we want and how we want. There is definitely a sense of freedom, real adventure and yes, we have a cold shower every night.
Thursday night, however, was a somewhat sleepless one. At about 1am in the morning both John and I were wide awake, adrenaline pumping and wide eyed. Not that we could see anything, but there were big monsters outside the tent.
“John, are you hearing that?”. “Ja, you know that a bush pig will run straight through your tent?”. “I’ve heard so”. We carried on listening to the ooink ooink, until about 2am when the chat was all about having bush pig on the spit braai and John admitted to having his Opinel knife ready to pounce any through runners.
