Cheetah Plains was the last stop of our two-week SA holiday and it was a great choice! It is a real authentic experience in the bush, you feel close to nature, yet very comfortable.
Doctor was our great guide, he is incredible. We loved his style and appreciated his knowledge, after quite a few safaris, we still learnt a lot. One of the afternoon drive started really quiet, when he spotted many vultures on trees. However first we did not see the hooded vulture that is a clear indication that there must have been a kill. Doctor was absolutely mad to figure out if there is anything, so he looked for the hooded vulture, and guess what? he found them! He drove into the bush and we found seven lions eating on an old buffalo bull. It was a unique experience to be part of his tracking and "expedition". I must also mention the great meals we had: beef lasagne, beans for brunch and mouth-watering steaks for dinner, all just perfect! Friendly people, always smile and help. It was just a perfect finish of our SA holiday!
