One special trip was to Nambiti Private Game Reserve near Ladysmith. It was a 3 hour drive from Durban but well worth it. Upon arrival we were settled into our posh tents in the camp. The camp had a big fence around it to keep the wild animals out but the guides warned us not to wander too far as sometimes the animals got inside the fence! After that, we were taken on a game drive until sunset. The next morning we had to get up early for another game drive. It was freezing! We saw lots of different types of animals on the safari.
At one point one of our group members saw an animal carcass and our guide Jonathan got out of the truck and walked to investigate it. Then he looked up and spotted a lion watching him! So he backed away slowly and tripped on a log. Jonathan got back to the truck safely and we were able to get a better look at a lion through the bushes.
