As we jumped into the open-back, eight-passenger Toyota Land Cruiser, our safari was about to start, all thanks to a suggestion from my doctor. As soon as we left the airstrip, we drove across a secondary road and entered into Kapama Private Game Reserve. Within three minutes of the 30-minute drive to get to the river lodge where we’d be staying, our cruiser was surrounded by a troop of elephants heading to a small pond to cool off. Surrounding the pond were six to ten giraffes! It was like a planned setup, but it wasn’t—Wendy, Karen and I were completely taken by surprise by the sight. I mean, really!
Once we arrived at the lodge, we were greeted by the management, who were so welcoming and friendly. With “We love the Canadians!” ringing in our ears, we were served cold, refreshing fruit drinks as the procedures and amenities of the lodge were explained to us.
