What is it like to go on an African safari? My son and his wife took us to Balule Nature Preserve – next to Kruger National Park in South Africa. This was an eco-safari – no hunting. Over the next few weeks, I will blog about it.
We stayed at the Naledi Lodges in the preserve in wonderful accommodations. Twice a day (6am and 4pm) we boarded an open safari vehicle and rode around the vast preserve looking for animals, birds, and reptiles. These rides were three to four hours long, with a break midway for refreshments and necessaries in the bush.
How close do you get to the animals? Very close.
Best to let him cross the road…
Our room at the lodge was very spacious and well appointed.
The food was good and nicely presented. We tried some unusual things – Ostrich and Kudu.
We had gatherings and drinks around the fire pit.
More to come soon. Please subscribe to this blog to be notified when new posts are available.
