Camping Under The Stars
at !Khwa ttu San Education Centre

We had such an amazing time stargazing from our hut at !Khwa ttu just beyond these branches. Growing up under the shadow of city lights means I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen a proper sky full of stars, and it's still super exciting every time. With the the help of the Star Walk app, we spotted several famous ones, along with Jupiter, the constellations Orion, Leo, Virgo, the crow, and (easiest to spot), the half moon. 

I also brushed up on my fire-building skills and enjoyed the walking tour learning about different aspects of San heritage like way they hunted and made jewelry from ostrich egg shells (bows and jewelry-making tools below). 


The people were so welcoming and the weather was perfect with that fresh, clean air that just makes you happy to be alive. Such a peaceful spot. I absolutely love this photo below also, which I snagged on the way to breakfast. The expressions on these elands' faces: priceless.
