    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.

    ... in the shade. The weather was beautiful; sunny and near 80. We opted to change and sit outside our tent on our "verandah". Dad read and I worked on this blog. Impala and Nyala also grazed in the grass in front of our tent. I realize that I have neglected to explain the tent situation. The tent can hardly be called a tent and as one of my classmates called it, we are "glamping". The tent is modeled after Hemingway style tents. It has two cement walls and two treated canvas walls ...

    ... had caused a diversion to lure the male away. All of the lions looked like they needed a kill as they all seemed quite skinny. Then out of the bushes behind one of the trucks appeared Skhondla. One of the main lionesses bounded up to greet him but he was not interested, instead he charged for the cubs chasing them off into the darkness before returning to the females and settling down. We then had to leave as it was close to 10pm which is when we have to be off Thanda for. We had ...

    ... on the large predictors truck on Mduna. The truck was late going out as when we went to get on it had a flat tyre so that had to be changed. We picked up the mother cheetah's signal and decided to follow it as it had been a few weeks since we had seen her and her 2 cubs, and with there now being lions in Mduna we wanted to know they were all safe. The telemetry signal took us on roads we had not been on before and led us straight towards a fence line where we found them looking ...

    ... we had a flat tyre. We moved to the other side of the dam which was close by onto a road and all got off the truck whilst Cela changed the tyre. Keeping close to the truck as we had bull elephants 100 yards away and lions who knows where. We were not far from the tented camp where a lioness had been sunbathing next to the pool over the weekend. We then decided to go and look for some rhinos via a quick check on the 2 male lions, but the other truck radioed us to say they ...

    ... Reef & Dune, we headed back just after 10pm as everywhere seemed to be shutting. Again we sat out on the patio hoping everywhere will be open tomorrow as it is Nelson Mandella's funeral. Day 21: I was awake at 5.30 and decided to have a shower and wash my hair. I don't have my hair drier here with me so need time for it to dry so that I can straighten it!!!! We have to check out by 9.30am, but we are not being collected until 4.30pm and there is nowhere we can leave our bags. St ...
