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.
