GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
This is my final blogpost in the series: "OUR AFRICAN SAFARI - TANGALA".
If you have missed any of these posts, I encourage you to read back by clicking on the links in the left hand toolbar of this blog.
We spent an amazing four days in the African bush and we leave TANGALA PRIVATE LODGE with millions of beautiful photographs and tons of wonderful memories.
Once again, I would like to express my deep gratitude to the trackers, rangers, catering staff, ground-staff, general staff and management of this beautiful lodge. Please be encouraged to improve and grow your beautiful bush treasure. I hope that, by presenting this particular series of blog posts, you will have gained many more fans and guests to your beautiful bush hide-out.
By way of tribute, I have put together a 10-minute-video for everybody at
who made this experience possible.
To my readers - grab a 'cuppa', sit back and enjoy our adventure:
