      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.

      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 ...

      ... but you can never hear them walk. Then along the road came Tulani the dominant bull who forced us back along the road, so we turned around and drove all the way around the fence line in the other direction. We got to where the other truck was with the lions, the 4 females were there with Skhondla Khondla. The vehicle with the German tour group that are here were lost so the other truck went to meet them and bring them back. Whilst we were sat watching, all the lions suddenly ...

      ... have just reversed to make room for them to pass!!! We went off up towards the power lines which run through one end of the reserve where we met up with them again. The sky was getting very black and the thunder started to roll, fork lightening flashed across the sky, we started to head off making our way home slowly but we came across a obstinacy (collective nMe for buffalo) of buffalo which we then had to stop and count, sex and age. We managed to get back to the lodge ...

      ... out on Mduna, and we didn't find anything we were looking for! but at least it was a sunny day. I didn't even manage to get any pooh pictures. Not the best of days....but they happen. Day 62: Out by 5am on Mduna in search of those elephants. Outside the lodge there were 4 lionesses laying in the middle of the road. Skhondla khondla was munching on what was left of the wildebeest. They had dragged it away form the camera trap nearer towards the road.We first picked up ...

      ... just sitting on the grass not even looking at me, so I didn't stay long. It was a little bit windy this afternoon and I think this affected my sightings.

      I stopped to watch a pair of Egyptian Geese preening their feathers. I also saw; a male bushbuck, a herd of male kudus, mother zebras and calves, wildebeests, an old male buffalo eating grass, a Wooly Necked Stork, a female and male ...
