"Better then the Caribbean" - according to Judy!

Ian & Penny MacDonald with their 2 sons, Liam and Calum, Judy Gibson, Frank Beckwith as well as Jennifer Johnson and Maddie Kitching joined our Kruger Safari tour in August…….   

Our August tour clients, as above, enjoyed their Kruger Park visit very much – Ian is really an African, having been born in Sierra Leone and Penny lived in Ghana for a time. They now make their home in the UK, as well as Judy, Frank, Jennifer & Maddie.  So this was a “British” tour this time, most unusual not to have other nationalities in the Group.

Kruger Park served up its wonderful warm days with traditional cool Winter mornings & evenings. No rain at all, so the Game were seen abundant in the Park, and in the Private Game reserve in the Kruger area.
Lion was seen in Skukuza during a morning drive, a wonderful way to start the day, although at a distance! Very exciting was seeing a few Hyena at Crocodile Bridge, and another single Hyena at Tamboti. Leopard was seen, also in Kruger Park, about to spring for an Impala kill, …….. and of course the ever popular Elephants, who endear themselves to us all.  Rhino & Wildebeest were both seen, and enjoyed.

Always so very memorable are the ‘close encounters’ with the Cheetah ‘cubs’ and feeding Jessica the Hippo – these always leave one with a cherished memory and a sense of privilege.

Better than the Caribbean – according to Judy !
