A Place to Heal

Buffalo thorn braai 1 (640x435)We stayed in Buffalo Thorn Lodge in the May, a year after my Dad passed away! We wanted to create a good memory to honour a wonderful man, who gave us so much!

It was, from beginning to end, wonderful! We saw the Big 5, and lion cubs being introduced to their father. We laughed and relaxed and enjoyed the peace of the Pilanesberg. We were spoiled by the staff, who were always ready for our every need. To come home after the afternoon drive, with the boma fire burning and chairs ready to spend family time, was heavenly!

After a year filled with sickness and tears, our hearts healed and our souls were filled with the peace you can find in the bushveld!

The highlight was the roar of a huge lion right in front of the lodge at 4 in the morning of our last day! As we lay listening to him we knew all would be well… now, in the future, and always!

Thank you for a magical time!
