One on one with the wild

Written on: May 23, 2013   |   I visited in April 2013 Still in Mozambique we made our sixth safari to the Limpopo Pational Park that straddles the borders of Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe. We got there at around nine and made our registrations for the rest of the day at the park's headquarters. In the company of a guide and armed ranger, we followed the river course which was a spectacular view of the sun rising and its rays glistering on the rivers water, we headed to the Lebombo plateau close to the boundary with Kruger.
There was a spoor of a variety of predators and a wide array of wildlife. The green vegetation covers the whole of the plateau and serves as food to the wild. The walk provides direct contact with animals like lions, zebras, huge animals like elephants just to see this beautiful creatures inches away from you was a breathe taking unforgettable moment.
As the sun began to set we engaged bird watching, a variety of birds inhabit the rivers of the Limpopo National Park we were lucky enough to find a group of birds that had come to feed to a nearby river how they kept close and flew away in a uniform pattern was pretty an amazing site. During the evenings a camp fire is set and people would gather around it our ears attuned to the sounds of the bush which made our adventure even more adventurous, as the guide prepared our evening meal which was scrumptious. A night under the stars ended our visit to the Limpopo Park.

Our three-day safari drive felt more like an old fashioned expedition than the usu... read more
