Hear what Dark Continent Explorers safari friends are saying.
The big, expected parts of the trip like the safari drives through Kruger Park were wonderful. Our days were busy and filled with one wonder after another; however it is the small treasures that keep returning to me. The soaring fish eagle returning to its huge nest of sticks, the black-backed jackal trotting off in the underbrush, the cheerful weaver bird working miracles with Mopani silk, my chatting with the Batik artist about her unique silk cloth, watching water cascade into circular potholes in a valley gorge, hearing the thunder of hundreds of hooves from Cape Buffalo moving away from us, and driving the narrow roadway through the majestic Drakensberg Range to mention a few.
