    So many cute kittens here! Shared a room with 9 other girls, the air con in our room would short circuit the whole block so spent 10 days getting drunk just so I could pass out in the heat of that room haha! The bar was excellent, I learned to really hate Smirnoff ice and love savanna cider! I got pretty good at fusball, or so I thought, and was first on the microphone for karaoke on night 1!

    What to expect in a third world country

    With a group of 30+ young travelers the accommodation was suited to our travelling needs (sufficient dorms, common area for eating- meetings etc, and of course a great pool and bar!) sure the dorms were not in the best state for hygiene (cleanliness) or security (door locks), and most nights those who waited too long would miss out on running water to shower, but for a first time visiting a third world country with a big volunteer group this is what I expected. The staff at BIBS were all very friendly and by the end of our stay we were saddened to leave the community we had grown so fond of. If I was to ever return to Saint Lucia I wouldn't hesitate to stay at BIB's again and would recommend it for anyone else travelling there (would also recommend it be with a group of people however) However the area I thought was quite safe close to shops and plenty of restaurants. Great stay!

    ... 2 young cubs. It was awesome, they were a bit away from us (probably a good thing!). The young cubs were playing as well as some older cubs. One of the females was the one (and only) to be radio collared at Lion call up the other night (Lion 5). Also saw Rhino, Warthog, Baboons, Zebra, Giraffe and Monkeys. Then at river lots of cars stopped, Axel said they were looking at Cheetahs, I spotted them ...

    ... water. We stopped for African Fish Eagle, Goliath Heron and a roost of Yellow-billed Kites. There were also Waterbuck and a big old Water Buffalo. Was it a sign of the times and life ahead, as there was a coach party of Saga clients on the trip.

    Dinner was taken at Alfredo's - an Italian restaurant, and we enjoyed a splendid meal. A litre of house wine red wine was only 75 rand - less than 5, and was very acceptable ...

    ... beach including Titanium, which in turn attracts nesting turtles because it it keeps the sand several degrees warmer and hot enough to hatch the turtle eggs. iSimangaliso Wetland Park has 5 recognisable ecosystems. Enough of the geography lesson, Colleen provide us with towels, mat and snorkeling gear for the reef at the beach. With high anticipation we set off and much to Jackie's relief I was able to drive again. In the park ...
