"The highlight was the African Safari in Kruger Park where we went on a 'shooting Safari' with our cameras. We toured the wild African plains witnessing "Big 5" - Lion, Leopard, Bush Elephant, Rhinoceros, and the Cape Buffalo. We were also fortunate to see Wild Dogs, Spotted Hyena, Impala, Hippos, Giraffes, Zebras, Kudu, the Chacma Baboon and far too many species of birds to keep track of. "
