South Africa 2002 - Homecoming and Gamefarm safari.

Its had been quite along time since I had been home - 14 months to be exact. I had such an amazing time out in SA last time with my girlfriend and 2 of her friends, that I couldn't wait to get back down there.
The weather in London was miserable , and having worked all through the winter - I needed to get away. Even better - the exchange rate allowed you to live like a King out there (R17 to £1). So I headed out there and spent a few days catching up with friends, then headed up to our game farm in Hoedspruit. Its a declared nature reserve, and is starting to look really good, now that we have dropped the fences with our neighbour - creating a huge reserve so the animals can move freely. We saw some pretty good game there, but just being out there is most of the fun.
Then a few days back in Sandton catching up with friends again - and all too soon it was back to the UK for me. Enjoy the pics, and a
s usual, please put all your comments about this site/page in the guestbook.
