Feedback from Sabi Sands trip December 2017

Herewith some images from our December trip to Sabi Sands . All guests met for a pancake in Dullstroom and then onto Sabi Sands for 4 days and 3 nights. The weather was great and not to hot, but we did get rained on one morning. Thank goodness for ponchos on the vehicle. Rooms were exquisite and meals prepared by the chef were delicious. We saw the big 5 almost daily and apart from numerous leopard sightings as well as lion sightings, one on a buffalo kill we were blessed with two male leopards on the Kruger boundry and wild dogs a few times as well.
Quests were livened up on one evening drive with jam jars with ample alcohol. Some quests have already booked for my July trip.
