Our Sales Manager Kyle Witten giving treats to Cathy after the walking safari – a job well done!” – May 2012
I flew on Delta via Atlanta. If you can’t fly business then seat 31G is best – Economy Comfort. I got to Atlanta early and stopped at One Flew South – great sushi and Thai restaurant in Ter minal E. 14.5 hours later (we had a tail wind) I was back in Johannesburg. My first night was at Fairlawns in one of the villas. The room is huge and the breakfast spread the next morning was abundant and fresh.
You can touch and feel these magnificent creatures. Cathy is the matriarch, then Sherini and the new little Warona – He is a ball of energy, ready to romp and play just like a 2 year old – trouble is he weighs over 200lbs and doesn’t know it.
My first Kruger reserve camp was Tanda Tula. Tanda Tula is a small cozy camp in the Timbavati a short 1 hour transfer from Hoedspruit airport. Lions, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and giraffe it’s all there. Tanda Tula is tented accommodation which is not common in the Kruger area.
The food was so good – Impala kabobs and curried shrimp. Time for an afternoon game drive – again with the leopard! Next up lion and few elephant sprinkle in a few kudu and you have a great afternoon drive.
