The new restaurant opened in mid December last year, as did the shop, a much larger and brighter version of the old one, better stocked with foodstuffs and with a striking new array of crafts and curios. Don’t go there expecting a bargain, though. There are the usual well-made mementoes like beadwork, bookmarks, keyrings and tea towels, but my eye was drawn to an attractive collection of pottery. I picked up a smallish pot with the thought that I might even buy it, until I saw the price tag of nearly R4000 and almost dropped it. Yes it was signed with the potter’s name, so probably considered artwork rather than a utensil, and yes it was imported from Maun in Botswana, but jeez, no pot is worth that kind of money to me. For the same price, two of us could camp at Kruger for a whole month!
