A most amazing sunset by helicopter over Northern Cape, South Africa at the Mattanu Private Game Reserve

Last night, in South Africa living a Travelife, I saw the most beautiful sunset over Northern Cape at the Mattanu Private Game Reserve.

It rained temporarily, just after I finished my quad bike safari game drive, and the presence of clouds over the horizon resulted in a most beautiful visual sunset.

A HELICOPTER RIDE INTO THE SUNSET

My friend, who had earlier taken me into Kimberley in his helicopter for some curio shopping, offered to take me up as well on a short hop to see the sunset from up high.

What a beauty this sunset was.

A GAME DRIVE BY HELICOPTER

And in between looking at the sunset, we flew low around the game reserve to spot all kinds of animals. So you might say we did a game drive — or rather, a game fly — by helicopter.

I spotted some big black bulls this way, as well as a host of other animals.

A DINNER PARTY IN THE BUSH

Then he set me down amidst the bushes in one corner of the game reserve.

Here, there was a lovely surprise dinner amongst the trees — a proper South African braai and a four-course dinner ever so elegantly set in the wilderness.

It was a most wonderful farewell dinner, on one of my last nights in South Africa, living a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
