Very memorable birthday
We're just home and thought we would give you some feedback from our amazing trip while it was fresh in our minds.
The Leobo leg was very successful. We were kept busy with activities including quad biking, rock climbing, horse riding, nature walks, paint balling and shooting. The chef Jeremy is a legend and every meal was delicious....without doubt the best we've ever had on safari. Apart from dining in the normal club room, we had lunch overlooking the hippo pool and at Sam's deck (breath-taking views), brunch in the middle of the bush, and dinners around the fire (to watch the eclipse) and in the awesome boma!
It was a brilliant idea to move to the Observatory half way through the week. The Observatory is on another level! It was also nice for the smaller children to have a heated pool and Jacuzzi. Whilst we were busy most mornings, the change of scenery allowed us to spend a few lazy afternoons enjoying the bigger house.
Overall Leobo was an enormous success and Andrew loved his birthday week there...especially in the Observatory Lodge!
The game drives in the Kruger were all fantastic and it is definitely more densely populated than other reserves we have visited. We saw the Big 5 on the first afternoon, and we saw 3 leopards in the space of an hour plus our first live kill - Wild dogs v Impala!! The boys loved their golf at the impressive Leopards Creek and the logistics all worked brilliantly!
All in all, a huge success, helped of course to your fantastic planning and attention to detail.
Many many thanks for all your hard work in making this a very memorable birthday...we can't wait for the next one!
