South Africa’s magnificent game


Since my last post I’ve been in Botswana, Ireland, France, all over South Africa, and now am off to Tibet in two weeks time. People say to me all the time that “You’re so lucky to be a travel writer”, and of course, I am, but it’s not all beer and skittles, nor even wine and roses. You have to be tough, keep an open mind, and learn to listen. I never travel anywhere without two essential items: my small down pillow and my notebook and pen. If you don’t capture the moment in the moment – it’s gone for ever…

The photos are just to show you how magnificent our South Africa game is. These pictures were taken in the Eastern Cape, in Sabi Sands (which adjoins Kruger Park) and Kruger itself.
