This One Time, At Kamonande…

I saw stars.


No man.


Not like that!


I literally saw stars.

On the Saturday night of our most recent visit to Kamonande, we went on a night game drive. We have a massive spotlight that we use to try and spot animals at night by their eye-shine. It always amazes me when we drive like this that the animals seem not at all bothered by the bright light.


We drove up a hill we hadn’t been up before, and whilst looking out my side window I noticed that the stars were particularly clear. Then when we stopped at the top of the hill, my Glugs said I should look up.

Bunnies, it took my breath away!

There was no moon, and I could actually see the Milky Way! AND there were two shooting stars! I actually cried! It was incredible, and very likely a sight that I will remember for the rest of my life.

I’ve never seen stars like that before.


…come play on my rollercoaster…
