South Africa 2009

I was on a safari in South Africa in April-May of 2009.  I visited the Hluhluwe Game Preserve and the Kruger National Park.
I landed at Richard’s Bay to start my African Safari.  Was picked up by my guide at the airport along with two other travers and we headed for the Mpila camp in the Hluhluwe Game Preserve. From Mpila we went to the Hilltop camp and then on to Mkuze, staying a couple of days at each. When we left the Hluhluwe Game Preserve we traveled north and to the West of Swaziland to the Kruger National Park. We stayed overnight in Piet Retief at a great B&B called Welgekozn County Lodge. We then went north on a federal highway to the gate at Orpen and then on Kruger park roads to the Satara Camp for our first 3 days there.  The blue line shown my route.  After spending 10 days in Kruger NP I departed from Nelspruit to head back home.
