Despite having had the aeroplane for some years now, we have not, until now, used it to actually go on holiday. Our April holiday plans were extensively disrupted by the different (and constantly changing) kids’ term dates. My son also insisted on going to his residential community service camp (who are we to stand in the way of community service?), and this meant that a family holiday was out of the question. And thusly it was decided that the two of us would head away for a couple of nights in the Madikwe Game Reserve.
Madikwe is only about 250km in a straight line from our house but by road it’s closer to 300km and can take up to 4 hours. With two airstrips in the park it seemed like the ideal opportunity to fly there.
