    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!

    ... my next story. The safari trucks can drive right up beside them and they are not at all bothered by it. They know the trucks are not a danger to them and they know they can't take down a truck so no point in trying. However, if you were to take one step off the truck, you are fair game and will be attacked. It's really interesting to see them so relaxed among the trucks. There is also a rule of no more than 2 trucks in an animal area at a time so they will ...

    ... chased out of the north by a group of four other male lions. We could see fresh wounds on the backs of the younger male’s legs; which he was cleaning a lot because of the flies. The guides get to know the animals that frequent the area and it seems the animals get to know the guides and the vehicles because they are very relaxed and do their normal things even if we are there, talking and taking pictures. Johan had a very special Red Crested Korhaan that had ...
