Livin' It Up November Tour

The lion cubs Shingwe & Timba (named after the Shingwedze & Timbavati rivers) at Tshukudu are doing well, and treated us to some rough-and-tumbles
Our 8 day Kruger Tour from 6-13 November saw the return of Jon Bunnig (The Netherlands), the smiling face of Epic Enabled's logo. Jon was on a tour with us in January 2002. This year Jon brought his girlfriend Eelke Kelderman with him on tour!
Hmmm...this traveller looks nice....I wonder what she tastes like....

Eelke escaped unscathed from Akila's curious cat-nibble, and thoroughly enjoyed her tour! So did the other travellers:

Jon, Eelke, Joan, Suzanne and Nancy went to meet Savannah, who - luckily for the group - was having a very lazy morning! The 5 travellers managed to get in behind her for a group shot!
Happenings on tour:
- spotting of Big 5 on the first day of tour
- rare leopard spotting on a game drive
- we were able to donate wheelchairs to 2 members of the Mafunyani Cultural Village on this tour - to Polani Florah Ndlovu and Makhengu Anna Khosa, who have been without wheelchairs since 1986 and 1996 respectively.
Thank you!
A very big thank you to all those who helped with donations for this wonderful gift!!

After the Kruger tour Jon & Eelke joined us at the Blue Tangerine in Cape Town for day tours and some relaxation after their tour.

The November tour was another successful sight-seeing and interactive trip, thanks to our spirited group! We hope to meet you again in the future...
