We began our first ever safari holiday in Sabi Sands. The word bush is apt to describe the landscape – wide open spaces of grasslands, areas of forest and river. And dry. We were lucky. We saw four of the ‘big’ five almost immediately. We were also lucky to be in the company of people…Read More
South Africa By chance I was in South Africa recently, in Sabi Sands for a ‘trip of a life time’ and spending a couple of days in Johannesburg.
