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!

It almost gets lost in her dreadlocks, but George manages to get it loose and hand it back to Johan so he can put it on a tree limb. As soon as it gets onto the little limb, it relaxes and doesn’t try ...

We fed them and got photos, I will never forget this. Neveeeeerrrrrr, eveeeerrrrrrrr! We headed back to makalali and the drive was long and painful, our driver didn't shut p the whole way and when he did aunty Jo and I tried to have a conversation and he thought he would join in, once again ...
... 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.
