Family Weekend

Quintin, Celeste and Natasha arrived on Thursday to spend 5 nights with us, they flew from Cape Town to Nelspruit, went in at Numbi and spent the day driving to Satara.
Went out early on Friday and took the S90 to try and find Lions for Natasha, we had seen plenty of lions on this road and I wanted to find Lions early on, to take the pressure of finding Cats off me, as luck would have it no cats, continued all the way to Olifants where we had breakfast.
Returned to camp, I promised Natasha the biggest ice-cream she could find as an incentive to spot animals which I bought her. Spent the afternoon at Girivana having sun downers.

Left Early on Saturday morning as the pressure is mounting to find Lion.
We agreed to meet the Retiefs for breakfast at Nwanedzi and took the S100, true to form we found 7 Lion on the road just after sunrise. Natasha was so excited, her favourite animal is now the Lion and not the Giraffe.
