Blog of the week : Bush walks at the Tremisana Lodge

Ellen had a fine time in South Africa - from Cape Town to Stellenbosch (wineries), flight to Johannesburg, drive to Balule Plains & the Kruger National Park (where he stayed at the Tremisana Lodge). She saw 4 out of the big 5 (the leopard was the missing one) and was brave enough to do a half-day bush walk.
