Experience of a lifetime

We spent 10 days in March at both Dulini Safari Lodge and Marataba Luxury Tented Camp. Both reserves were recommended by Kerry & Clare who arranged everything including all internal transfers (planes and cars) – all we had to do was get to Johannesburg.

We ran out of superlatives – the accommodation in both lodges was superb, with fabulous food and service. We shall never forget sitting in the plunge pool with eleven elephants – including a baby days old – eating leaves and grass 50 yards away. Or the leopard loping down the road. Or three baby lions joining in the feast provided by a kudu killed the night before by the lioness. Or standing very quietly – we did four days on walking safaris in Marataba – watching two slightly edgy rhinos less than 100 yards away. Or the hippos coming out of the water at dusk. Or the giraffe bending to drink. Sunrises and sunsets. The fantastic Waterberg mountains. Every day we said – there can’t be anything else – but there always was. An experience of a lifetime.
