Mabula Game Lodge

On arrival at the game lodge we were welcomed with a hand washing ceremony and drink. The accommodation was beautiful and the girls enjoyed some relaxation time in the warm by the pool. After a wonderful lunch buffet we went on our first game drive, split over 5 trucks. What a fantastic experience, some were lucky to glimpse the lions in the distance, but we had wonderful views, of giraffes, elephants, rhinos, zebra, wilderbeasts, impala, antelopes and many more.

On our return to the lodge we enjoyed a filling meal, and tasted local delights such as antelope skewers. We had our faces painted in traditional style, and were treated to dancing and drumming in the traditional style, and many of the girls and staff joined in. After dinner it was an early night ready for our sunrise game drive.

We were up bright and early on Saturday morning, and started our day singing happy birthday to birthday tourist Anna. From here we again went on another game drive and saw animals such as hippos, crocodiles, ostrich, buffalo, warthogs, bush pigs, jackals, hyena. What a wonderful way to start a Saturday.

Afterba filling breakfast, we left for Johannesburg to visit the apartheid museum and fly to Cape Town later today,
