We picked Viva Tours as they responded quickly. It was a good choice.
Day one starts with the drive from Johannesburg to Tremisana Game Lodge. Once we were set in our room we boarded an open sided jeep for our first drive. We had a covered jeep with open sides. Some of the jeeps were not covered and the people looked miserable. It was raining and on the cool side. I had my rain jacket on. I am in the third row of seats at the back. Bouncing over the roads in search of animals has water falling from the sides and the back. The man next to me had water running down his back every bounce. Only my arm was getting wet. Sally was able to nab a middle seat more out of fear of being eaten than rain. Animal sightings we poor on our first night out, but all that would change in the next few days.
