If in doubt, ALWAYS be Batman! Madikwe Safari Lodge.North West Province

My new travelling companion was intent on getting a
complete experience of his recent visit to
Madikwe Safari Lodge, part of the More Group of properties.
Being Batman, he chose the healthy breakfast option.

Even Batman needs a Spa treatment.
And he was certainly not dissapointed by the treatments offered.

After spending a couple of hours in the Spa,
a refreshing dip in the Lodge pool was a great way to work out.
The pool overlooks a waterhole that provided great game viewing.

Just part of the herds that came to drink at the waterhole.
They entertained both Batman and the other guests with their antics.

Wandering around the property, 
admiring the indigenous artifacts on the walls.
This was what he discovered in the bar area.

Time to head out on a game drive.
The feather is from a Kori Bustard
and is meant to bring luck in game sightings.

Taking to the trees to look out for wildlife...
Was he successful?

He certainly was!


Every game drive has to have snacks.
And those supplied by Madikwe Safari Lodge were delicious.

Batman gets to interact with the other guests on the vehicle.
This family was from the USA.

After returning from a chilly evening drive,
some time in front of the fire was a necessity. 

Or perhaps a warming beverage...or two.
Gin seems to be his preferred choice.

His only "party trick"...
being able to balance a plate on his head.
A far cry from being the real Super hero that he is.

Some delicious bread to snack on while 
waiting for dinner.

After a tough day of eating and game drives,
the Caped Crusader heads off into the night.
Is he on a mission
or just going to bed?
Night all...

When it is time to print out my special images,
this is the company that I rely on to do that.

Bush gear to make me blend in...
in comfort and style.

I have worn these shoes in the jungles of India
and on the beaches of Croatia.
Not to mention, many game reserves in Africa.
They are probably the most comfortable pair of shoes
that I have ever owned.

When I get home. I rely on this ISP
to provide me with high speed fibre connectivity 
to enable me to get my postings published in record time.

When offered an option...
ALWAYS be Batman.
The newest of my travelling companions.

My new addition, this awesome laptop bag from Solo.
Padded for protection and with enough pockets to keep
almost everything INCLUDING the kitchen sink in,
this is definitely an stylish addition to any business presentation.
Be it in the boardroom or the bush.
This bag can also be worn as a backpack. 
There are straps in a hidden compartment that can be deployed
when you need both hands for other purposes.

A new "tool" in my camera bag.
This locally made product was indispensable when using a long lens.
The ball and socket might look simple...and it is, 
which is why it should be in the gear bag of every serious photographer.
This locally made, deceptively simple device is ideal 
for tracking birds in flight or animals in motion.
The base can be used on a beanbag or a tripod,
with the ball being fitted to the camera.
The simplicity of the device allows to to move from supported
to hand held in a fluid motion.
There is also a version that can be used on a car window.
