South African Safari Day 1

Now that the Worlds are over Agnes is getting her dream vacation.  She has always wanted to go on a safari so we arranged for a 5 day safari to the Sabi Sands reserve at the Idube Game Lodge.

Dave granted me permission to contribute to his blog so since I will use it as this is still part of my worlds trip :) 

We managed to get away from our awesome accomodations at Henley on Kilp around 11am on Sunday.  Really going to miss staying there! 

Since our booking for the game lodge is not until Monday, we decided to cover most of the 500km drive today and landed in Nelspruit.  This only leaves us with about 100 km to drive tomorrow.

The trip was uneventful as we travelled down the N4 toll way which was a very nice 4 lane highway, not quite as large as we are used to in North America but still very easy to drive on. 

Agnes had booked a very nice place to stay for the night and we spent a bit of time walking around the grounds before calling it a night.
