After lunch we head out on the horses in search of game. I am given Shumba to ride – a beautiful bay gelding.


My room tonight is World’s View – and what a view it has! I’ve never looked forward to having a bath so much. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings…

  1. This blog is really interesting, but why it is on 14th place in google’s search results.
    It deserves to be in top 5. Many webmasters think that seo is dead in 2016, but it’s not true.
    There is sneaky method to reach google’s top 5 that not many people know.
    Simply search for: pandatsor’s tools
