May 8, 2016

Today we say goodbye to Cape Town and to Ian our guide and Charles our driver.  After breakfast we head to the Cape Town Airport for our flight to Hoedspruit.

We arrive in Hoedspruit and meet up with our guide,  Alicia  and were transferred to the Kapama Private Game Reserve.
We arrived in time for our first game drive.  This is where we start our contest of "Can You Find?"  Let's see who sees the most animals, reptiles and birds.

Kapama Private Game Reserve is home to over 40 different mammal species.  We had sightings of the Big Five - elephant, lions, leopards, buffalo and rhinoceros.  There are approximately 350 bird species and a myriad of  smaller species can also be seen here in their natural environment.

We had the opportunity to see several giraffe, impala, and a jackal came to visit when we stopped for a snack and a jackal when we stopped for a snack and a drink

 I have posted pictures on facebook since I can't get them to upload here.  Check out the facebook page for Wings Eagles CT.

We had a time to clean up and head for dinner in the lodge.
