      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 dumped the suitcases and headed down to the estuary mouth and I walked the boardwalk whilst the Ann, Gill and Mike stretched out and relaxed on the grass. I soon added ...

He then decided to walk very slowly down the road ahead of us giving the rest of the herd plenty of space. The bulls of this herd are so very protective of them and always on there flanks. It is nice to see. We also managed to get photos of black rhino, impala and zebra pooh. When we got back I spent the rest of the morning making the scat chart for my animal track booklet. ...

Perhaps he had been away on holiday who knows but I bet he had a real scare and would have required some clean underwear lol. We had a ...

One of the boys Michael behind us leapt out of the truck, obviously more petrified of spiders than lions lol. It started a a beautiful hot sunny morning, but then the heavens opened and by the time we got back from drive we were drenched to the skin. When we got back we found out that the male lion Tyella who had been released from ...

      Now it was time for the Wildlife Ranchers meeting. This was to be
      held at the Nkwazi Lake Lodge, overlooking the Jozini Lake in the
      Pongola Game Reserve, the owner of which was a prominent member of
      the WRSA. Lucy and I got there a bit early so that we could have some
      time to tweak her presentation and get some other work done. Let me
      paint the scene for you as we finally entered the conference room, it
      was fairly comical. About 50 ...
