With the busy season slowing down, we become more in tune with all the things that make us fall in love with the Wilderness again. There is time to watch a Mallard hen teach her ducklings how to swim and find food and in the distance a smoke column rises into the air from someone that is surely busy enjoying a traditional South African braai.
This is the time of year when Wilderness can truly be experienced at it’s best. Suddenly parking is available everywhere and going to the shop doesn’t mean trying to fall into the shortest que. Dinners at the local restaurants are hassle-free and relaxed and all the summer stock is on sale. The eminent Wilderness beach is wide open for slow afternoon strolls and the dolphins do their rounds from Wilderness to Plettenberg Bay and back.
We loved catching up for 3 sets of return-guests this month. It’s always great to have familiar faces dropping into their home-away-from-home and the owners were also happy to come over for a quick visit.
