Elephants up close at Kruger National Park

Elephants up close at Kruger National Park  |  Kruger National Park, South Africa  |  I must say that Elephants have always been my weakness, and yesterday got the chance to see them up close and personal during our afternoon safari, courtesy of Tinga Lodge at the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Tomorrow I am off to Bostwana, so I expect to see plenty more at Chobe, but this is what I have been able to experience so far. Continue reading Elephants up close at Kruger National Park

Big Apple to Big Five Daily Nonstop by South African Airways

Big Apple to Big Five Daily Nonstop by South African Airways |   Press Release by SAA |  Hi daar my vriende (Hi there my friends in Afrikaans). Great news by South African Airways, now offering nonstop service, in both directions, between New York (JFK) Airport and Johannesburg, South Africa, offering some of the fastest and most convenient service from the Big Apple to the Big Five. ( SA #204 – JFK/Johannesburg – 11:15AM/08.40AM // SA #203 – Johannesburg/JFK – 08:35PM/06.40AM ). This competitive advantage in the market gives you the ability to spend less time transiting airports and more time conducting business or enjoying time or on safari.

Onboard their new nonstop flights, SAA’s Premium Business Class customers will enjoy the comfort of our fully-flat 180° seat, with extra large pillow and thick duvet for a good nights sleep, on-demand audio and visual entertainment with an extensive menu of programming, gourmet meals and award-winning South African wines. There no shortage of comfort for Economy Class customers either, with SAA’s industry-leading legroom of up to 34” inches at every seat. That is 2”-3” inches more legroom in Economy Class than most other carriers to Africa. In addition to more space, their Economy Class offers audio and video on demand programming at every seat, featuring an extensive selection of blockbuster movies, short subject programming, music and games. Economy Class customers enjoy a selection of freshly prepared meals, complimentary beverage & bar service, including some of South African’s finest wines, and an amenity kit to refresh with during flight. So great excuse to get your plans together and join one of the Gay Luxury Safaris we are planning for 2012. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
