We drove around Manyeleti game reserve this morning with Garth.
Again we saw lots of prey species, impala, water buck, gnu and loads
of birds. We almost ran over a cheetah
whilst driving past a massive lagoon looking for rhino. As if the
sighting of cheetah a couple of days ago wasn't enough. This guy
was perfectly happy to wander along in front of us until we got
bored of him. I love cheetah. They are such a regal, beautiful animal.
I couldn't get enough of watching him. Eventually, we had to say
goodbye and search out some other critters. We said hello to a male
at his place who'd been in the wars a little further into the park.
He wasn't overly impressed at his unwanted guests and gave us quite
All too soon we had to head back to camp and then, for me, back
to Pretoria. This safari has been simply stunning. One of the best

I've made it a point, deliberately not to recommend companies,
but I'm gonna make an exception in this case. If you're going to
South Africa, and you want to have one of the best safari experiences
possible, then have a look at the Transfrontier
Safaris website. It might not be quite as a luxurious safari,
you might not see quite as many animals as mine, but I would have
been as happy if I'd seen a quarter of the animals that I saw on
this safari. The experience was out of this world.
