Swaziland

Our accomodation

When we arrived they carried our luggage

These ladies can even balance trays with cups of tea on them. The tray will sway back and forth, but they don't seem at all worried that it'll fall. It never does

Our hut was quite nice. It had no walls. We had a special gate to keep out the wildlife, which was definately needed. I saw a baby nyala run by. The entire structure is open to the external bush, including the toilet. It's like having a toilet outside. You've never felt something so relaxing as doing your business outside, on a real porcelain toilet. We had Impala venison for lunch. My favorite meat out of the entire trip. There's no electricity at the camp, except for solar power to heat the water. So you get to use old fashioned paraffin lamps. All the meals are prepared on gas stoves or open fire.

Later I had the joy of eating wildebeast sausage. Oh so tasty indeed.

You might be wondering why I was able to eat game at a game reserve?
Well at Mkaya there are no natural predators, so they have to cull the herds so the population doesn't suffer from steep rising and crashing.

In swaziland, you eat game meat. The local cattle is actually a protected species. The game reserve was originally built to preserve this cattle. But you need the big five animals to draw tourists.
