Somebody was showing us photos of wild dogs, which reminded us of our wonderful stay at Simbavati River Lodge (and thanks once again to them for inviting us there).

London flight prices
Hopefully we'll be back to exploring London's magical streets soon! South Africa is currently on the UK's Red List, which means only British nationals are allowed to travel from South Africa to the UK and then they have to complete 10 days quarantine in a hotel. There are no direct flights connecting South Africa to the UK currently.
