After a very long drive to Hoedspruit we arrived bone-tired in the green oasis of Naledi. Upon our late arrival we were whisked away with great delight to join the night game drive in search of rare wild dogs that were spotted in the area.
As we were sipping deliciously cold wine against the background of a gloriously setting African sun, our informative tracker and guide entertained us with interesting stories about life in the bush. The game drive continued well into the night and ended on a high note as we not only spotted the elusive wild dog, but also some hyenas. Back in camp we were welcomed by the aromatic smells of an African braai and a bonfire in the Boma. The surprise of the evening was being serenaded by Naledi’s own African choir. Amidst singing, dancing and some vigorous drumming the evening meal was hosted by the delightful T.K. and was the end to a wonderful day.
Our early morning drive the next day started with the prospect of searching for lions. After some relentless tracking and bundu-bashing we spotted them and what a magnificent sight to see. This was the completion of an exceptional visit to a place where guests are made to feel like family and where generosity of spirit, comfort and professionalism reign.
