    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.

    ... on our journey.
    The next animal we see is a wildebeest and on his back he had a couple of birds who were helping him get rid of the parasites on his back. A scene, animals helping each other.
    On roads that we traveled today we were not very successful.
    So now we are headed back to camp. As we are driving we encounter a huge elephant in ...

    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 ...

    ... tea (on my own, well sort of, there was a monkey hanging around and waiter reassured me to not worry about the stick he was holding, it was to keep the monkey away). Thought I had chosen a cream puff but it was a carrot and potato puff with savoury cream filling, not what I expected!! Chocolate truffle was nice but the brandy snap was the best. With Rooibos tea of course. Then I went for a walk, they assured me there was no dangerous animals. Saw Ostriches in enclosure, ...

    ... previously closed due to the high water levels was now open so we took a left turn along this track. Several giraffe were on the hillside, visible but not very close. A grass snake was on the road looking as if it had been attacked by a bird, it was struggling to move.
    As we stopped to view zebra Roland noticed a large monitor lizard on the side of the road. Unfortunately it moved too quickly for a photo!

    ... the response that came back was sorry!!! Lol The truck with the Germans on came up behind us and stopped to help. They got their spare ready and then we all had to get off the truck so it could be jacked up. The other truck eventually reappeared lol. With the tyre changed we all jumped back in, now our back tyre was also very low, so we limped back to the lodge very slowly with the spare tyre chain clunking beneath us, but at least we didn't lose anyone to those hungry looking ...
