As the rain starts to fall the flowers of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve start to bloom, a welcome sight after the dry dust of winter.
The Last Word Long Beach has been voted as the #2 top hotel in Cape Town by the discerning Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards. Being recognised in this prestigious reader survey is a proud, humbling moment for us at The Last Word Intimate Hotels and Safari Camps.
As most people who have been to the Kruger National Park, or on any safari experience for that matter, would know just how rare and special it is to encounter a pack of African Wild Dogs. The approximate number of dogs left in the Greater Kruger National Park is ±300. In an ecosystem that is roughly 2,5 million hectares in size, it is one of the species that is in danger of extinction.
Over the last couple of days we, The Last Word Kitara team, have really been taking advantage of the time and space we have to offer. Driving along the Klaserie River in the early morning in the crisp, chilly winter’s air, a layer mist overhanging the remaining water in the river line and the early morning sunlight bursting through the large Jackalberry trees along the riverbanks.
