Mr and Miss Kitty are planning another holiday!

One if the best things about not working is that you can go on as many holidays as you like, particularly if your husband works from home! You aren't limited to this 4 weeks a year mumbo jumbo (not that I really limited myself to that beforehand but that's another story)...

After much debate and frustration over fare availability, we finally decided on a trip to South Africa, England, Scotland and Hong Kong. We are travelling in September so hopefully the peak season will have passed.

Last time we went to South Africa we had a wonderful holiday. We started in Cape Town and visited Stellenbosch, Oudtshoorn, Port Elizabeth and Addo Elephant Park before catching a flight to Durban and continuing our journey through Hluhluwe Umfolozi and Kruger. It was a magical trip and South Africa is one of those places I have always wanted to go back to. I particularly loved Cape Town which is an absolutely beautiful city and watching the animals, especially the zebra and giraffes. They are amazing creatures.

What are you looking at?

This trip we only have 5 nights in South Africa so we have decided to just focus on animals rather than towns and cities and will be spending the entire time in Kruger Park. It's the biggest of all the game parks in South Africa (and also the most popular) and has a fantastic variety of animals so we should have a really nice time on our trip there. I can't wait!!

A giraffe - note its fabulously long legs!

A majestic elephant!

Last time we were there we saw a lot of animals, including wild dog, rhino, hippo, elephants, giraffe, buffalo and zebra but we missed out on seeing any cats. So that's going to be on my wishlist for this trip! Lions, cheetah, leopard! Oh my!
