End of discussion; that definitely was the highlight.

We stayed at two wonderful safari camps on this trip. These notes are lifted straight from our notepad.
Arathusa Safari Lodge, Greater Kruger National Park: lions one minute lazing in the shade and next minute devouring a carcass – each man for himself and don’t forget the guttural roars from this scene; hyena in ex termite mound; zebras look great; poise of giraffes; leopard sparring with two giraffes and stalking impalas; and what about the two rhinos?
Pom Pom Camp, Botswana: Diversity is the key word here. More natural. Grasses and plains as well. Tents means you’re part of the experience – it’s what you see and hear that delights you. And clear, fresh air. Even the long light-aircraft flight to reach here gives you the thrill of being in the middle of emptiness and nature and exclusivity – you and the animals. Such happy, friendly people in BotswanaDSC01335 DSC01322 DSC01319 DSC01315 DSC01278 DSC01259. Great camp layout, tents, management and food. Canoe ride on delta. Elephants walking past our tent, leopard and cub, giraffes, lion asleep, lion roaring at 7.00am as he walks past our camp.

    It was good to relive the trip!
