Elephant

Addo Elephant National Park - known as one of the highlights of South Africa's Eastern Cape, and a must-see for tourists in this part of the country. Only a short drive away from Port Elizabeth, it should've been an easy journey, except for one problem - here in South Africa, they drive on the other side of the road. Oh, **** ...

Kitchen Nightmares

We half-expected Gordon Ramsay to step into the kitchen, screaming insults, slamming plates of food down on the counter tops, and throwing the microwave out the window, as tonight, we had one of our worst meals in recent memory. What kind of expletive-laden cracks would he make about this place? Who would he make cry? No doubt that his carefully- …

... on the nose, forcing a constant change of tack every few hours for the first few days until we were out of the lee of Australia. For a time it looked as if we were heading directly for Indonesia rather than west for Cocos. After the initial slow-going the pace eventually picked up and the remainder of the journey passed without incident, other than avoiding a seemingly endless stream of fishing boats and playing eye-spy with the various items of flotsam and jetsam that drifted by on ...

Lions and Kudu and Hippos... OH MY!

... we had checked off many animals: Guinea Fowl, Blesbuck, Hippo, Tortoise, Impala, Kudu, Elephant, Zebra, Rhino, Giraffe, Hare, Wildebeest, Hartebeest, Warthog, Water Buck, Bushbuck, Crocodile, Duiker, and Nyala.

We just could not find the lions... until, right before arriving at the dinner site. There they were! All the young lions, no longer cubs were playing in the open field. We heard the King roaring but no one could spot where he ...

... was nice and spacious, with a long lawn down to the jetty and moorings for 2 boats (.......bother, I knew we'd forgotten to pack something). Without other distractions, we all got some homework done without too much pain. The fly in the ointment, as it were, was the cockroach. Cathy discovered this when it nipped her in the night - before scuttling-off down her leg. It was a bit of a ...

    The staff was the highlight of our stay here, always smiling and friendly. The guest house is well situated for airport access, but is a bit far from anything, so a car is a good idea. Rooms were clean and very spacious. Breakfast was simple, but had a decent selection of items. I'd avoid the dinner here, as ours was reheated in the microwave and quite disappointing. Wifi access is a tad pricey, and the 30/60 minute vouchers must be used all at once, otherwise your minutes will be lost.
