When we came to SA in 2018, we visited an area in Kruger called Phalaborwa which is a less commercialised part of the Kruger. We booked an air bnb cottage and whilst it looked great, nothing could prepare us for the hospitality we received from the family that owned the property. Since our stay in 2018, we have kept in touch with the family and nothing could keep us for visiting them on this trip.
It was great to see and stay with them again and whilst we didn't see a great deal this time, this week was all about catching up with some very special people that we now feel privileged to call friends.
As Phalaborwa end of the park was so quiet, we decided to spend a weekend in the Bush at a place called Satara to try increase our chances of seeing Cheetah as so far on the trip, this was the only big cat we hadn't seen. Satara is a good area for cheetah and last time we visited we saw a mother and five Cubs.....alas we were not so lucky this time! In fact we saw very little in terms of cats, just going to prove that wildlife does not come to order! However we did see lots of different wildlife scenarios playing out, I have selected a few pictures depicting those moments.
We had a brilliant time in the Bush and a great week with friends!
