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.

The bit of Swaziland we drove through seemed to be entirely given over to sugar cane. It undoubtedly brought a degree of prosperity to the place but it made for an uninteresting drive. ...

Today we were having our last big animal day in a Big Five game reserve, Hluhluwe and Umfolozi, which is about an hour's drive from St Lucia and where we have visited on previous trips. We were up early and on the road before breakfast. The weather was grey an overcast, but unexpectedly in the morning the cloud burnt off and it became extremely hot and becoming humid.
We started in the Umfolozi part ...
... and I had a wash standing in a large bowl. My hair desperately needed washing but **** happens lol. I then cut 3 of the staff members hair for them so instead of a garnish of leaves I now had hair lovely!!!! After lunch we had our sundowners quiz before heading out for a drive, we then all met up on top of a hill with a 360 degree view for a few beers and the quick fire round of the quiz. After tea we had a few beers before hitting the sack. Day 83: This morning we are on the ...
