Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

CHEETAHS AT SANBONA GAME RESERVE

Date: 30th June 2009

Last year my son and I had a short sojourn at Sanbona Game Reserve - roughly three hours traveling East of Capetown.  It comes under the same ownership as Shamwari - where I took part in the BBC 2 Series 'Safari School' (training to be a Game Ranger).

Shamwari is North of Port Elizabeth - either a very long drive or a flight - so Sanbona is almost on the doorstep.  It's quite different from Shamwari and I enjoyed it very much. Sanbona is a newer Game Reserve and not quite as well stocked as Shamwari but it's more difficult finding the game which I think adds to the excitement of a Safari.  They had some eighteen month old Cheetah Cubs and after a lengthy trek we finally found them shortly before they would have gone over a hill and disappeared into deep undergrowth.  I took some video pieces and now Stuart (my website creator) has put them into the Gallery for me.  I hope you will enjoy them.
