I have been meaning to post this for a while, but only got around to finishing part one today. Hope you enjoy it.

I like your comment on many levels that flying is for the birds. ;D I'm surprised that you didn't stow away on the luggage vehicle to avoid your second flight.

Love the cell-phone video with the hail. Love seeing the Nikons firing away as the large hail keeps falling.
D700, D300; D200; F2, Lumix FZ30; and a bunch of Nikon MF & AF glass (& a Rokinon 85mm f1.4)

Nicola and Pepe relaxing in the sun by the edge of the pool:
Same pool — about 20 minutes later ……
Watching the hail falling while safely under cover and well supplied with drinks …
Recording the evidence (Dallas, Pepe and Anthony)
The Evidence itself!
The South African Open 2010:
The Braii later that evening:
Dallas, Fanie, Louise and Nicola
Nicola, Anthony, Graham and Pepe
Merete and Jørn
The Amazing Pepe Jones
who put this whole flawless event together (and not only the week in Sabi Sabi but a further two weeks after that when a few of us toured the Cape) with all the complicated travelling and lodging arrangements which all of this entailed.

Please feel free to use any of them in any way that you wish or combine them into the Blog if you want to.
I can collect up some from Day 2 as well if you like?

Finally we are all assembled at the Boarding Gate ready for our flight to the Kruger International Airport at Nelspruit. Graham has reappeared and Dallas is just getting his breath back after racing round the airport in search of Graham.
From L. to R. (but some are partially hidden):
Graham, Rebeca, Frederico, Filipa, Anthony,, Merete, Jørn, Nicola and Dallas.
Aerial view as we approach Nelspruit:
Kruger Park international Airport has quite the most attractive terminal that I have ever passed through:
Dallas checking text messages to find that Pepe and her colleague Richard (who had left Johannesburg before dawn to drive the 6-hour journey to Nelspruit towing a trailer that contained all of our luggage) is just arriving at the airport at that moment to pick us all up. Incredible planning and timing!
A couple of hours later and we reach Little Bush Camp where the staff come out to greet us and help us unload our luggage.

For me the best parts of the safari are meeting the participants and sharing in the common love of taking pictures. Making these posts about the adventures is also great fun.
