Now that is an honor!

We had the pleasure and honor to host Mr Litwak, from Los Angeles, his wife Tiiu Luk and their son Michael a few weeks ago. Little did we know that Tiiu is THE African travel expert. She has visited, professionally for the Smithsonian, pretty much any famous lodge in Africa between Cairo and Cape Town. Literally.

As you can imagine, we were a little “nervous”. ;-)

Well, it turns out, there was no need for that. They absoluely loved it here. In fact, they told me that this was one of the best lodges they had ever stayed at. Wow! Here what she emailed in to me to thank us for their stay:

“Forgive my delay in letting you know how much we enjoyed and appreciated our stay at your wonderful Vuyani Lodge.  The lodge itself is a delight to the eye, and a comfortable vantage point to enjoy the wildlife coming through the grounds of the lodge.  Your staff all made us feel very welcome, the guides were excellent, and Craig does a terrific job of managing it all.  Your chef does an excellent job, and we enjoyed sharing meals with the rest of the guests. Thank you to you and Craig for the pleasure of sharing that meal with us in Hoedspruit, it was delicious, and great getting to know you.

Our game drives in Vuyani were delightful, and we saw lots of wonderful wildlife.  The frosting on the cake was the smorgasbord of excursions that gave us the opportunity to explore the neighboring attractions, including the breadth of Kruger National Park, and the stunning landscapes of the Blyde River Canyon.  What was most wonderful was the chance to spend time as a family doing these explorations, and the only thing missing was our son Michael, but he had a compelling work assignment that appropriately took priority.

I took a number of photos at Vuyani, and at Kruger, and if you want to use any of them in your blog, please feel free to do so.”

Here also some of the best photos Tiiu sent through. All of them spectacular!
