  3. Fantastic experience. Definitely on my bucket list
  4. Traveling Teacher AU it is really awesome to travel to the Sabi Sands. It is a bit cool in the mornings in July on the game drives, but the lodges wrap you up warmly in blankets and warm water bottles. Just take a beanie, gloves and a scarf with. The light is very good for photography in winter and you get the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Enjoy your trip.
  5. Thank you Tom K. It is really a privilege to view these animals in the Sabi Sand. They are very relaxed around the game viewing vechiles, and you can get great shots.
  6. Fantastic trip report.
  7. Hi Graceland. We were lucky indeed, especially with the wild dogs and cheetah. We don't get to see them often when on safari.
  8. Hi Marks, thanks, it was awesome to view these endangered animals
  9. Hi Kitsafari there is a maximum of 6 guests per safari vechile. Founders camp is my favourite camp at Londolzi. The rooms chalet's are beautiful. Food is awesome and the staff is always friendly and helpful
  10. The next morning out early again on drive coming across 2 old buffalo dagga boys. We were fortunate to see an endangered white rhino cow with a calf, and a rhino bull lurking nearby. We came across a breeding herd of elephant. Awesome to watch these amazing animals. It was an amazing trip and we hope to be back soon.
  11. The following morning's game drive started early. We had an amazing sighting of a male cheetah. On the afternoon game drive we visited a hyena den, with a fairly big pup with the mother hyena. The following morning's drive was the highlight of our trip, founding a pack of 14 endangered wild dog in the Maxabene river bed. Great interaction with the animals, a leopard with a kill in a tree above them, and 2 hyena on the side and the wild dogs growling at them, something I have never experienced before. The afternoon game drive delivered beautiful giraffe and zebra.
  12. Our trip to Londolozi started on the 12th of March for 3 nights. On arrival we were welcomed by the friendly camp managers and butlers of Founders camp. On our 1st afternoon game drive we headed over the Sand River to the northern section of the property. We had a drink stop in the Manyelethi river bed with rangers Andrea, Nick, tracker joy and Kim. On our way back to camp we saw a crocodile on the causeway fishing. Beautiful view across the Sand River towards the western section of the property. Sunset over the Sand River.
