Safari tails : Treepol and TreeMum’s adventures in Kruger, Cape Town, Kalahari and elsewhere

This year I was privileged to share the wonders of safari with my mother. The trip was booked as a soft adventure and an introduction to the daily discovery and delights that a wildlife safari delivers. Mum has now been bitten by the safari bug and we plan to return in 2014. The highlights of Mum’s first ever safari were:

Birdlife in the Kruger Restcamps
Two young male lions (hopefully) trailing a very large herd of buffalo near Satara
3 cheetah hunting kudu
Eles and lion at N’semani in Kruger
Wildflowers at West Coast NP
Lunch with Dikdik in Cape Town
Coastal scenery on the flight from Cape Town to Walvis Bay
Living Desert Tour (ex Swakopmund)
Elephant gathering at Rietfontein, Etosha
Meerkats at Bagatelle
Cheetah with 3 x 4 month old cubs, Phinda

The itinerary was:

Forest Camp, Moholoholo Rehab Centre (1 night)
Kruger 7 nights (2 Satara, 3 Olifants, 1 Pretoriuskop and 1 Berg-en-dahl)
Hluhluwe-Umfolozi NP (Hilltop Camp 2 nights)
St Lucia (Lalapanzi B&B 3 nights)
Cape Town (Blackheath Lodge 4 nights)
Swakopmund (Hotel Schweizerhaus 3 nights)
Etosha (Dolomite Camp 1 night, Okaukuejo 2 nights, Namutoni 1 night)
Bagatelle Game Lodge (3 nights)
Phinda (Forest Lodge 4 nights)

Photos from the safari (including accommodation) are now online, https://picasaweb.google.com/Treepol/
