    Absolutely loved it, the food was great, the people were really good to hang out with and taught me a lot about the bush. The room I stayed in was very clean and comfortable, with excellent service the whole time. We had all sort of animals wandering around the lodge during the day and night, including Giraffe, Zebra and a Spotted Ginet!

    ... and a dung beetle rolling it’s ball of dung. Around the small watering holes, some of the bushes have a white nest that we thought were made by birds but they are made by frogs. The frogs use their spit to make up a foam that they use to build the enclosure where the eggs are laid. This is to ensure that no predators eat the eggs. When the tadpoles hatch, they drop into the water below. As we all have our heads down looking at the little things, ...

    ... for breakfast. Soon enough, they found it. Kim had told us that it was very rare to see a kill, so obviously we were hoping to see one. Before too long, the lion pride spotted a female giraffe and her baby and immediately the pursuit began. It was truly amazing to see these beautiful animals go from docilely walking through the bush ignoring us, to shifting into hot pursuit of their prey. Unfortunately for the lions, the ...

    ... Gomo Private Game Reserve spending one night on route.Matthew took over the driving and later to our relief the road was quiet as suddenly he cursed at the car driving towards him on HIS side of the road - very close I might add - as at the last moment he realised he wasn't in Norway but Africa. Phew
    On this road we encountered a herd of giraffes enjoying the heat of the ashpalt.
