This is the safari experience that we've been looking forward to for a long time. It's the complete opposite to our past couple of game parks where we were in an overland vechle full of 18 people. We had planned on staying at a nice tented camp at the Edeni Private Lodge, but we were surprised by a nice upgrade to one of the 5 star luxury cabins (big thanks to our travel agent!).
In total we had 6 game drives on the private reserve plus a full day excursion into the Kruger National Park. We took so many pictures, but have decided to focus on the cats in this blog because we finally broke the curse (haven't seen big cats for a long time)! It was fitting that for both our first evening and our final morning we saw the lions and cubs. It was also great being able to walk behind the cheetah while it was hunting. I guess there are some benefits to staying on a private reserve. We had an awesome time.
Welcome to our travelblog page. We initally called ourselves "AfricaBound" because we spent a year traveling around Africa from August 2007 to August 2008. At that time, little did we even think that we could go on another extended trip. Somehow through much perseverance and determination we were able to save up for yet another extended trip, this time as sort of a honeymoon. Our current itinerary has us traveling from July 2010 until December 2011 through Central Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and then back up to SE Asia, Nepal, India and then finally Japan.
