Amazing African Sunsets

Picture by Cory Lee
Cory Lee from Curb Free was on our last October Kruger Safari, joined by the Magnusson Family from Sweden, Ann from the USA and returning clients Dagmar & Brigitte from Germany.
A truly international EPIC group :)

As for so many of our client, travelling from overseas to the "tip of Africa" can be a bit daunting and a leap of faith even for experience travellers. However you can ask any of our 'friends', it is a truly EPIC experience and you will not only make lifelong memories and new friends, it will also boost your confidence and realization that you can do it!

Cory is a travel writer and is documenting his travelling experiences. You can read some valuable tips on how to prepare for an African Safari on Cory's blog:
How to prepare - South Africa safari
Almost ready - 11 days South Africa

This group was again blessed with great wildlife sightings, including the Big 5 and some additional incredible animal encounters.
A little orphaned bush baby has settled in very nicely at the Bush Camp and feels right at home - hopping from shoulder to shoulder!

Of course Ntombi was again very much seeking attention (which we of course give her :). She just loves to hang around the Bush Camp withing the safety of her humans. Her 2 mischievous brothers are only leaving her in peace when there is a human to 'referee', therefore Ntombi has made the bush camp HER home.

Gunnar, Ewa & Hanna carried on with the Cape Town extension. The weather played along perfectly and on the last day we had the perfect weather for Table Mountain! Mojo, our German Shepherd- Malamute mix, won their harts over immediately with his very gentle nature and overall cuteness.

Mojo - cuteness itself!

It was a great pleasure meeting you all on our October tour and sharing some of the incredible sights, sounds and wildlife our wonderful South Africa has to offer!
