We drove to Port Elizabeth to return our hire car, then got a transfer to the Amakhala Game Reserve. We had a great taxi driver called Mana. He was originally from Zimbabwe and he chatted to Mark about tourism and english football. He was such a happy guy and made our journey so entertaining. At Amakhala, we were greeted by Monique who showed us to our safari tent. It was along a very long wooden ramp, a good 10 minute walk from the main lodge house.
After a light lunch in the lodge, we went on an afternoon game drive. We saw giraffes eating leaves from the trees, a cheetah with her four cubs sitting majestically in the long grass and then an elephant rolling around in an empty water hole. Fantastic.
We had dinner with a young swiss couple, Daniel & Sandra. They talked about their travels, cheese and chocolate! Sandra loved the Shiraz, but I managed not to get drunk.
