At the end of our two week safari we came to the Tok Tokkie Trail, met our guide for these three days and two nights and started off onto the dunes. Our first day was a short one, just the late afternoon ending in our first camp where we got to see what our 'room' looked like for the night. While we couldn't really picture what this would be like, we quickly became campers, finding the privy, learning how to arrange everything in little space and then went to dinner, as the sun began to set. After dinner, it became rather cold and I took off my hiking boots and just got in the cocoon that was my bed. Looking up at the dark sky with no light pollution, no clouds, no haze, just stars including the Milky Way was absolutely magical! In more than seven decades of life, I had not seen the sky as bright as this! But, sleep did come. In the morning we were up and ready to go for the full day. I joined the over the mountain gang while my wife joined the around the mountain gang. Over dunes, across plains and up and over the rocky trails we went. The tea stop was in the midst of the mountains with beautiful scenery in all directions. That night the wind was howling and, while the temperature was not as low as the first night, the effective temperature was much lower. So, even with the heavy ponchos we were given, my teeth were chattering unstoppably. Therefore, shortly after the sun went down, we were both in bed, getting warm and fascinated by the clear sky and the stars above. The next morning, my wife was awakened by our guide bringing hot coffee, to her delight. Shortly after that we were on the march again, but just for an hour or so. Our wondrous trek was over. We had joined the small number of folks who have had the marvelous experience of hiking the Tok Tokkie Trail!
