Our Holiday Time

This year we saved up to do something that we haven't done since we got married, a holiday. A proper holiday and a rest. With us being in South Africa and the ship not needing a captain whilst it is in the dry dock, it seemed the ideal opportunity to do it and experience this wonderful country. Sharon used her google and tripadvisor skills to hunt out the best places to go and form a holiday for 3 weeks. We started off with a trip to a game reserve about 3 hours away. It was amazing to be so close to the animals
Here are some pictures from our holiday.
On Safari - once you get here, going to a game park is pretty cheap so we we couldn't not go to one for a few days. We spent a few days in Umfolozi/hluhluwe game reserve. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any lions (something the rangers hadn't seen for 6 weeks), but we saw many other animals and it proved to be a very exciting part of the holiday. Nathanael was a particularly good spotted. Nathanael spotted this rhino turning up at a water pan for a bath! After a few days up in False bay we came back down to St Lucia where we were able to see more animals in the reserve there and hippo's and crocodiles on a boat trip that was included in the price of the cottage that we were staying in. We then continued up to the Drakensberg mountains for some amazing scenery and ended the trip with a week at Morgan Bay. Thank you to all helped out to make this trip possible for us, we had an amazing rest and break.
