    Hi, March should still be fairly warm. But always quite cool on game drives in the evenings. With the whole South Africa praying for rain, hopefully their will be some bit Kwandwe set up to handle all weather conditions!!
    How can I book a flight from Port Elisabeth to Kwandwe? We arrive at 2 pm from Johannesburg (and New York). Any suggestion is appreciated. Ulla Buchner
