DAY 8 AND 9: SAFARI:

A typical day of safari starts early in the morning: that's when the chance is greatest to see animals. In the middle of the day, it is often too hot for both animals and humans, so you might stick around the swimming pool. In the afternoon, go out again on a safari with drinks in the sunset. We have experienced that time and place are forgotten when a flock of elephants blocks the road!
