AFRICAN ADVENTURES PHOEBE, 13, OUR JUNIOR TRAVEL CORRESPONDENT, REPORTS ON HER LATEST TRAVELS IN SOUTH AFRICA. “ I dreamed of going to Africa and when I finally got there the reality was more amazing than I could have imagined. I might have had to get up at 5.30 every morning but the excitement of what the day would bring had me leaping out of bed. In the Kalahari Desert, breathing in the smell of Africa, I felt like I had stepped into another world. We followed a wild dog hunt on our first game drive and the excitement was almost unbearable. The females led the way while the teenagers caused all sorts of mayhem chasing porcupine, warthog and too many antelope to count. As darkness settled the hunt became more serious and I was actually glad not to see a kill. I have never felt so conflicted; while I wanted them to feed I could not help but cheer on the brave animals that fought them off. We tracked lions and made plaster casts of their giant paw prints. We found the pride lazing by a water hole while the cubs fed and annoyed the adults. When they ALL began to grunt and roar the air seemed to vibrate, my hair stood on end, my spine tingled and my tummy rolled. It got louder and louder before the two males roared so loud that even the truck shook. It was exhilarating! While watching a meerkat colony, our tracker picked up fresh cheetah tracks and moments later we were lucky enough to see two of them lying in the evening sun watching the world go by. I will never forget my first sunset over the Kalahari, the sand and sky turned every shade of green, blue and pink imaginable until all I could see were silhouettes and stars that seemed close enough to touch. In the Kruger we tracked rhino and saw a leopard up a tree with its kill, found lions, giraffe, hippo, elephant and buffalo. We were even surprised by a hyena while on a ‘pit’ stop behind a bush one morning. We had our luxurious safari tent raided (while we were out!) by a troop of very clever baboons who took clothes, washbags and my sister’s Latin revision - or that is what she told school. I was a little scared but mostly cross until the guides made me laugh by saying that somewhere out in the bush were some very well dressed and perfumed baboons with fresh breath reciting their tenses. I will never forget a single day and I cannot wait to return. Africa really does get under your skin.” To plan your own safari adventure please contact Bailey Robinson Africa specialist Jake t: +44 (0)1488 689700 | e:
