My wife and I (Marietjie and Charl Theart) are Honorary Rangers from the Boland Region, which is affiliated to SANParks. We Boland region HRs have been allocated the unique opportunity, with six other HR regions, to be involved by hosting a monthly bush camp in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. To get the camps started, 12 of our HRs went up to the KTFP in July and have now been to the park four times in the past five months to finalise everything.

In July 2018 I had an upgraded full suspension lift kit fitted to my Ford Ranger T6. This was done by Johann Viljoen from 1st Alignment Centre in Stikland.

In November, the Boland HRs hosted our first true Wilderness Camp with eight guests who we took up to the Kgalagadi, with myself as guide. We met with our guests at Twee Rivieren on the Sunday morning and departed for our first overnight camp at Kij Kij.
