    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!

He says that there are so many varieties of plants that it is impossible to know them all but they do have lots of books. He also says that sometimes they won’t see the same flower for many years. The amount of rainfall and other weather conditions play a role in determining what plants are around. Johan pointed out a ...

    ... with lots of exposed wooden beams, thatched roofs, and open-air buildings throughout. The lodge is built in a manner similar to Zulu mud huts.

    The days on safari are spent generally as follows: 5:30 am wake up call followed by 6:00 am coffee and light refreshments, then a 6:30 am game drive returning around 9:30 am. Guests then have about 6 hours of leisure time to spend as they please with typical activities ...

    ... 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.

(knowing he would reply with the word for leopard) he smiled and said "mgooay" to which I replied, "I'm learning shongan!"he laughed and got back in the jeep.

We saw a lot on our drive to ...
