While in South Africa, we stayed in the Mpumalanga, Marloth Park area for nearly a week and took three different safaris during our visit. The views and being around the wildlife was extremely spectacular.
We’ve been asked about our favorite portion of the trip and that is just hard to pin point. Everything about our safaris were awesome but the one thing we were sad about was not seeing all of the big five animals. We saw four of the big five animals – elephants, buffalo, rhinoceroses, and lions…but the leopard didn’t make an appearance for us. And really, that is just the way these safaris go. There are no guarantees being out in the wild and we can use the leopard as an excuse to visit South Africa once again.
We’re going to break up the safari into two different posts. This one will just feature our day safari that we booked through our lodge. Lucky for us we had a guide to ourselves!
