Safari at Ngala Lodge - This was an experience of a lifetime. To see our kids faces on the first day when we spotted a leopard and chased it through the bush in an open air Land Rover, crushing small trees and searching for the skiddish leopard was truly amazing. Over the three days we saw elephants, water buffalo, rhino, giraffe, kudu, hippos sunny on the bank of a watering whole, the lone crocodile, leopards, lions eating an impala, a band of 6 brother lions sleepily playing with each other, a mother cheetah and her 3 young eating a freshly killed impala, 10 hyena cubs playing in their den and many incredible birds. We will never forget this experience!!

  1. Incredible! I can only imagine how you felt upon seeing these animals right in front of you, as part of the landscape. The kids must have been giddy! We are eager to see more photos when you return.
