On arrival we were told to get settled in our tents and go to the Boma (gathering area) at 3:00 for our first game safari.
On the other side of the Boma there was a raised platform that made getting into the rather high Land Rovers a little easier. It was another beautiful day in South Africa.
Pictures of elephants do not relay the size of these creatures when they are in the woods and very near your land rover.
Nature is the " Art of God".
The following pictures are around the grounds at both lodges in Zulu Nyala. There were extensive grounds including actual rooms, tents, two pools, 3 eating facilities and many views of the wild. The gardens went on forever. Each sleeping room had an entrance path with many various plants and flowers planted.
This bird is an Ox Picker. They eat ticks off many of the wild animals.
An other day comes to and end. Today there are blessing to and for all.
Our trip started at the GRR international airport Tuesday August 21, 2018. We landed in Johannesburg South Africa in late afternoon. We were greeted by Zulu Nyala's representatives and were taken to the Country Manor where we attended a fine dinner and wine that was waiting for us. The Country Manor is very interesting and we are anticipating seeing it in the day light. It was a very long Tuesday and it's difficult to believe that Wednesday is over too!
Thursday August 23,2018 Soweto Shova all girl school
Art work and artists fill the main street of this small Township of Soweto. This street has the home of Nelson Mandela and Desmond TuTu one block apart. Both received the Nobel Peace Award.
Visit to the Lion Safari Park
It was lunch time for the lions. They prefer to eat a leaner horse meat to beef that has more fat content.
What would a Safari Park be with out a personal encounter with the baby lions.
This baby on the left was 4 months old, second & 3rd one 5 months old and the one in back was 6 months old. Baby # two was getting a little edgy...and scared me...they are bristly and kinda rough. Not fuzzy and cute like they appear. Next stop, Zulu Nyala tomorrow by way of King Air Flight; which is one hour.
Leaving Zulu Nyala Country Manor to Heritage Lodge
Lives of the rich and famous...Chuckle chuckle...this is the picture of the FIRST plane we left in.
Ready for take off and everyone is very tired...after we were in the air for several minutes the co-pilot said we were going to circle back to the airport because of an emergency GPS malfunction in the control panel. The brand new silver jet below is what we boarded NEXT, after about a 45 minute delay.
We have arrived and yes the runway is dirt!

After my husbands widow maker heart attack in 2004, the doctor said just relax and enjoy life for a while. So it happened: the 43' NewMar Mountain Aire coach was purchased and the house sold....eventually. Relaxing? Not always! We are truly blessed to spend this time together... and with friends.
