For those of you wanting to get an easy introduction to Africa, Buffalo Ridge in the Madikwe game reserve is a great place to start.

It is only 5 hours drive from Johannesburg on good roads. A regular car is fine – no need for a 4×4. Alternatively there is an option to arrive by light aircraft – it is malaria free. There are quite a few lodges in the reserve but Buffalo Ridge stood out for us as it is owned by the local community. I dont know if that was the reason, but the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.

The highlight was probably a post dawn game drive breakfast when a troop of baboons tried to join us and all the kitchen staff came out bashing pots and pans to dissuade them.
