Jamie "This is our last safari run and we had seen all of the Big Five so it was a free for all. We drove past the steaming river. The first animal we saw was the wildebeast and then a black bat Jackel with many giraffe. As it was cold and dark we decided to have our breakfast stop and then go out hunting the animals. We could not find anything for …

Edie " This was a magical morning. The first thing we saw was four Cheetahs by the river. We followed the Cheetahs and we noticed they were hunting so we stalked them. They were four male Cheetahs.

Encounters with Elephants

A travel blog entry by mickoobyrne


... but they had completely disappeared! It is amazing how a mob of such big animals can move so silently and be hidden in what seems to be fairly open scrub. Heading on we soon came upon a bigger herd again with mature adults on the road stripping foliage. We stopped and switched the motor off to observe it all at a very close distance. Suddenly the bush parted right beside the car and there was a Bull elephant ears wide,trunk up,tusks waving and trumpeting loudly for us ...

    What a fantastic experience. From the moment we drove through the gates to the time of leaving. We were there with four children under ten and everyone had such a wonderful time. In addition to seeing the Big Five, we followed four Cheetahs on a mission to kill, watch giraffes eat Hyena bones and were surrounded by twenty elephants. We stayed at the Villa and relaxed watching the wild life drinking at the river below us. The food was delicious, service of a high standard. Any negatives - yep we weren't there long enough.
