“Are you comfortable guys?”

“Yeh we’re cool Greg!” we both answered as the rotors picked up to lift off pace!

Then with a quick move of the stick we lifted off the ground at Kruger Airport bound for the bush!

Wildebeest!

As we flew over the mountain ranges I had secretly arranged for the heli to land at the top of a mountain where I cracked out a bottle of bubbles and raised a glass to us and our awesome adventure!

Looking out through “God’s Window”, as the view point is called, we pondered on our journey thus far and how grateful we are to have sailed over 24,000 miles together around the planet this year and to have done it in the style and with the route we’ve taken! It is amazing what can be packed into a year if you really go for it!!!

We enjoyed a very special half hour on the mountaintop until the weather closed in and we took to the air again!

Some of this excitement came in the form of this Bull elephant protecting his herd!

We didn't have to go very far from camp this day as this female leopard was right outside the camp.

Leopards, Lions, Cheetahs, Rhinos, Hippos, Giraffes, Elephants, Hyenas, Impalas, ostriches, crocodiles, Zebras & many more animals & birds.

We had the pleasure of sitting right next to them in the wild and experiencing them in the present moment!

Zebra!
