      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.

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 ...

      After breakfast we headed out to explore the recently opened Western Shores part of the iSimangaliso reserve via the Dukuduku Gate. Initially it was almost devoid of animals as we only found a few Reedbuck and Waterbuck. The recent rain had left the grassland very wet and ...

Paul has got the week off the jobs, but after producing the map of Mduna with all the new roads on it! the management had taken it to a meeting with the Thanda management who loved it and asked if they could get him to insert a grid over the top. This is because currently the Thanda guides do ...

      ... 2 of the cubs from last night, they are laying in the road and are some distance from where we had left them. Whilst driving our route we see Tyella he looks like he has a limp and a bit of a swollen eye, but he is moving around and is right next to many impala and wildebeest who do not seem distracted by his presence. We then hear on the radio that Skhondla khondla and some females have killed a wildebeest right outside our lodge fence, as much as we want to rush back ...

      On my return I spotted a monkey in the driveway eating ...
