Safari Time

The BAE twin prop lands ontime into Kruger Park Airport and we hook up with Stan the transfer man. British. In SA since 1971. He talks non stop on the transfer to the game lodge. Full of insight into contemporary South Africa. A voice of experience....and a steady driver. Surprisingly he avoids all the pedestrians on their way home from school and the hopeful sitting at street corners waiting for the offer of work. Kate and I arrive at Kapama River Lodge, a cup of tea and slice of fruit cake, introduced to Noel (guide) and Alfred (tracker) then we join   the Belgian family for our first game drive.
