Sirheni was su­per

go! - - Letters Upfront -

We booked ac­com­mo­da­tion at Shing­wedzi and Punda Maria in the Kruger Park, and also a night at Sirheni. We knew what to ex­pect from the main camps but we’d never stayed in a bushveld camp like Sirheni so we didn’t

know what was com­ing our way. Your July is­sue ( go! #145) ar­rived the day of our de­par­ture – with the fea­ture about the Kruger’s bushveld camps! Our un­cer­tainty about stay­ing at Sirheni quickly changed to ex­cite­ment. Esma Marnewick’s de­scrip­tion of the camp is spot on; we were not dis­ap­pointed. We were warmly wel­comed by Matilda Mokhombo (pic­tured) and we gave her our copy of the mag with her photo in­side. The ac­com­mo­da­tion was first-class and the camp was re­ally neat. We re­gret­ted hav­ing booked for only one night, espe­cially af­ter Ar­mando Baloi came around (as promised) and told us about the an­i­mals we might see. Af­ter our Sirheni ex­pe­ri­ence, we’ll cer­tainly visit the other bushveld camps in the park. JAN BOS­MAN, Rand­burg
