The donkey all fired up, anyone for a shower?
Horses galloping over the dunes with thundering hooves in the early hours of the morning.
Once again the sun rises over a unforgettable stay of three nights

Having spent some time in the park we started our journey back by staying over at a guest-farm called Inkbospan run by Landa and Thinus Conradie. Working sheep farm with ample dune hiking available. Vultures are frequent visitors. Hot water still the old fashioned donkey but very efficient.
