I am back from my trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe and while I was very happy to get home and see the cats, at first their reaction to my arrival was more muted.

ZULU and FRODO: How dare you leave us for so long!?

But come nighttime the cats were already softening up. Amarula made a rare appearance on the bed (she almost never sleeps with me) and actually sat beside Frodo. Even Frodo seemed shocked!

Soon Zulu joined us and we had a good cuddle. They finally forgave me!

Here are just a few photos of what we saw. For me the highlight was a pack of very rare wild dogs (aka painted dogs), a brown hyena, baby lions and an elephant that came right into camp!
