Africa in pictures (part 3)

dear diary,

After 4 days in Cape Town we were on our way to sample the great outdoors on Safari. First stop Samara Private Game Reserve situated in the Great Karoo. What a place!!!

Build in true colonial style Karoo Lodge, and all other accomodation lodges, offers individual style combined with great comfort and delicious food. Not a Big Five reserve here is were we walked with Cheetahs and had our near death experience with the Buffalos…
