Hello safari-talkers, assuming all goes well with our 2017 SA trip we were thinking that spotting Turtles along the Kwa -Zulu coast ( November-early March) sounds like fun and were looking at Hluhluwe-Imfolozi as we have been there many years ago staying probably at hilltops although the recent splendid reports on Rhino Ridge are tempting, then 3 nights at Thonga Beach lodge or similar for the turtles, Tembe elephant reserve looks rather good and then Ithala which looks a different scenic reserve and possibly a battlefield thingy. Has anyone been to ithala or indeed Tembe or has been to see the turtles? this is for 2018 but part of the fun is the planning!
Has anyone been to Ithala Game Reserve?

My wifes Parents live about 150kms from the Reserve.
It is a very Scenic Reserve but has suffered from neglect and poaching in Recent years. I will get more Info for you from my in-laws äs to the latest condition of the park.

However if you are in the area it will be nice to visit.
I hope this helps. I have enjoyed my couple of trips there over the past few years.

I have the same disease! As for Flatdogs we are going back but I have 2 other trips planned first. We leave for Kenya on October 23rd so I hope to see you at my trip report. Uganda and Kili at the end of 2018 and then some sort of Kruger Luangwa Mana Pools trip just need to figure out which one first. Maybe we will see you in one of these places but I'm guessing not on Kili!
As for Sanchez well he's already 3rd string and I can always console myself with already having 3 super bowls!

I am used to supporting bad teams- it is character forming and prepares me for lifes disappointments such as the badger cull, fox hunting, unlicensed grouse moors me not having enough money to go to Africa every year, finding out I would never be Gary Sobers......You had a great time at Flatdogs and Zambia is such a fine place.will definitely look out for your trip report-and Uganda looks fun-but yes Kili not so much.
