Die Mond

Die Mond another good long weekend with friends


A well co-ordinated weekend to incorporate my birthday, Easter and the week before Afrikaburn’s craziness.

A little cramped on the campsite but it was busy – still nicely situated on a river’s edge.  Ablutions were quaint but a bit of a walk to get to and no electricity which is fine as we are all self sufficient.

No cell signal for miles around – this is somewhere in the Tankwa Karoo !  To access Die Mond you travel through various Karoo farm lands with plenty of gates and beautiful scenery.  The distant Tankwa farm stall / shop / restaurant / bar is fabulous and not to be missed along with another stop at the Halfway House.

An eye-opener as to what Afrikaburn must be like.  We were privy to all the makings of this year’s Afrikaburn creations – and sworn to secrecy until after the Burn.  It was interesting to say the least, but I could not possibly imagine “living” in those conditions although thousands flock there every year.

We rounded off the day with a braai at Tankwa Tented Camp alongside remnants of previous Burns’.

Awesome birthday celebrations – thanks to my 4×4 Queens – and the usual Easter Egg hunt which all the kids thoroughly enjoyed!
