We decided on family friendly comfortable style...With game right outside our secure garden fence....Our safari game driver... Orbet.... Was brilliant and knew how to track animals, he showed us so much and taught us along the way about the animals.... Every Safari experience was different and so exciting because you just never knew what you were going to be lucky enough to see... We were lucky enough to see the big 5 two days in a row!!! Watching lions relax and feed after a kill a highlight... And sundowners each night from one of the vantage points on the spectacular reserve... Watching heards of wild animals roaming and grazing freely was beautiful... Zebra, giraffe, kudu, eland, ostrich, all antelope species.... Buffalo.. Elephants...and so many more.... heaps of birds.....We took a book to mark them off.... And a mamal book also to help us.... We were treated like friends visiting... Enjoying beautiful meals together with the hosts and their friends and enjoying drinks each night in the cellar bar!! One night we were late home from a spotlighting safari... An elephant decided to take a stroll down the road to home and we had to follow him!!! We would love to return one day with our boys.... We will be back to see the aardvark!!
