Go! Camp & Drive - - Contents - BILLY AND ESTELLE FOURIE Grey­town

Re­cently, we had the priv­i­lege of vis­it­ing the Kgala­gadi Trans­fron­tier Park for 15 won­der­ful days. But trou­ble met us, and we’d like to ex­press our sin­cere thanks to Nos­sob’s camp man­ager, Jaco Fi­lan­der, and staff mem­bers Les­ley and Ste­van Strauss, Jackie Ti­tus and Evan Bok, plus the other peo­ple whose names we don’t know. Our car’s starter mo­tor gave up the ghost at Cu­bitje Quap wa­ter­hole, far from ev­ery­thing. We re­placed it barely two years ago and we were very sur­prised that it was a prob­lem again. With the help of our sons at home, we found a new starter mo­tor in Uping­ton. We then asked Jaco whether he knew of some­one who was on the way back from Uping­ton per­haps. Some mem­bers of Jaco’s staff were at­tend­ing a con­fer­ence in the town and were set to re­turn the fol­low­ing day. Jaco im­me­di­ately of­fered his help, and ar­ranged for the part to be col­lected. We had to check out of the camp the next day – the same day the spare part ar­rived at Nos­sob. The staff even helped re­place the bro­ken starter mo­tor, and by 10 am, we were ready to leave for Mata Mata. Jaco and his peo­ple went out of their way to help us, and we’ll be for­ever grate­ful.
