    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.

    ... to be wearing his aviator sunglasses for extra cool factor. I was surprised how quickly we were able to take off in a small plane like that; it seemed like we only needed 50 feet or so of runway to get off the ground. Our last experience with small planes was the one we flew over the Grand Canyon, which involved frequent and turbulent 2-3 foot drops. Mom was understandably nervous about flying in a small plane again, but it flew so smoothly, and the flight only ...

    Africa - Pongola

    A travel blog entry by kas19 on Nov 10, 2014

    After a leisurely sleep in to 7:30 AM we packed our bags said goodbye to our bush paradise and headed towards the Dolphin Coast in hopes of some beach time. We arrived along the shores of the Dolphin Coast around 1 PM. The Indian Ocean greeted us with substantial waves crashing against the sandy beaches. Looking out on the open water we observed a substantial amount of cargo ships floating in ...

    The day saw a complete change in weather to the previous few days. Early morning light cloud soon disappeared making it very hot with fair humidity. After being outside the air-conditioned room at 22 centigrade seemed positively like an icebox.

    Before breakfast I wandered around the grounds failing again to see the very vocal Tinkerbird. I spent a while photographing the Weaverbirds from the ...

    ... a year old came marching up to the truck ears flapping and trunk head and tail waving, it was so funny as the smallest are normally kept surrounded by the adults with the bulls further out protecting all. We had a couple of beers after tea and went to bed. Day 73: Out by 6am on conservation. We were back on the main road clearing and burning the chromolaena.
