Sediba – a Place of Smiles

Caroline Phaho’s smile is infectious. “Welcome to Sediba Lodge!” she beams as she opens the Land Rover’s door. I smile back in thanks, grateful for the fragrant, cooling face-cloth offered on a silver platter. It helped to wipe away the dust from the 25-minute drive from the Western Gate of the Welgevonden Game Reserve. Smiles […]

A Flight of Fancy in a Hot Air Balloon

It’s the oldest form of flight. And perhaps its most graceful incarnation. Indeed, hot air ballooning could be described as the pinnacle of mankind’s sortie into the skies – the honest-to-goodness grandfather of modern flying.
