The day had started early, we had our nature walk around the grounds of the lodge to see some of the …

The tour I booked was 4 days which included both transfers; 1 day in the Kruger Park and then 1 day (today) as a ´rest day´. You could spend this however you liked, there were many optional extras available or you could just lie by the pool and enjoy the sunshine. I decided to go to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in the morning (there were …

Big 5 Game Drive

I had to be ready by 6:30 to be picked up for the Kruger Safari Tour, I just hoped I wasn't alone again. As I got into the van there were three others; Esen, Selin and Utku. All from Turkey on holiday together.

    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!
