It has been a busy week. Last weekend we were in Cape Town, Rob and I, staying in Constantia with my mom: high tea at the Cape Grace Hotel, on a perfect afternoon at the V&A Waterfront, was a treat for us all. Sunday it was brunch with old friends Ian and Pam at the Gardener’s Cottage in Newlands – golden sunlight streaming through oaks, the blue outline of Devils Peak giving way to the bluer sky beyond.

Monday was business: meetings with colleagues from UCT and the Harvard Kennedy School, decisions to be made with a provincial government department. Then a flight back to Johannesburg, on Tuesday night, to finish writing up a six-monthly report on our programme for a steering committee meeting next week.

And then, late this morning, after I had sent off the agenda and report and various other docs came a message on WhatsApp: the Madikwe gang has secured a booking for our next safari (as our overseas friends and family like to call it) for next year, for four days in October.

I didn’t consult with Rob – I simply replied ‘we’re in.’ And here are some photos from this year’s visit to Madikwe to celebrate.

Life goes on, and then it gets better.
