Blogs, the new postcards.

I still send postcards to a few people, but it is easier to post photos and stories to a blog for everyone to access, plus the photos are my own and the stories only have to be written once.

With my birthday coming around again, I am headed out for another adventure.  This year two friends are joining me and my sister for a trip to South Africa and Mozambique.  Our trip last year to the Western Cape and Cape Town was so much fun, we thought we’d see more of South Africa.  I missed the game drives last year, so our first location will be concentrating on safari drives.

We will start at the Savanna Private Game Reserve in South Africa.  It lies next to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve (with traversing rights), near the Kruger National Park.  The area is known for its abundance of game, leopards in particular.  Savanna Lodge participated in a leopard DNA biopsy program with Cape Leopard Trust in 2007.

Our second stop will be at the Cybele Forest Lodge, also in South Africa.  We hope to see God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, drive into Kruger National Park and enjoy some spa treatments.

Our third and final stop is in Mozambique where I will spend my birthday on the beach.  We will be staying at the White Pearl Resort at Ponta Mamoli, Mozambique.  This is the southern-most part of the country, very close to the border of South Africa.  We plan to do some beach relaxing, snorkeling and swimming with Dolphins.
