We arrived in Hermanus from the bush by way of Cape Town. Hermanus is a small beach town about an hour South East of Cape Town. We stayed for a couple of nights at Birkenhead House a related property to Royal Malewane.
Finally starting to wear a bit more “girlie clothes.” Definitely a Dress and White jeans type of place.
Our last safari stop was Royal Malewane – the epitome of Safari Luxury.
We were greeted at the air strip by our guide Antony – who is a wealth of “bush” knowledge. He knows where all the animals are at all times and what they are up to. A perfect guide to show us as much wildlife as possible in a short period of time.
On our first game drives – we came across a lioness and her 4 cubs and 2 leopard cubs in the evening. They were beyond precious. I wanted to hug each of them.
We arrived in the afternoon from Johannesburg and were greeted at the airstrip by our ranger – Grant and his Spotter – Walter. Grant and Walter brought us to the lodge where we dropped our things and changed into Safari clothes for our first game drive.
Our room at Boulders is spectacular – situated on the cliff overlooking the Sabi sands river.
We went on game drives each morning and afternoon and were amazed each time at the sightings.
During the game drives we would stop for a coffee in the morning or cocktail in the evening and our guides would set up a lovely spread in the beautiful setting.
