Yesterday at 04:38 PM Pilanesberg National Park Photo Safari, South Africa [by Twanger]
We went on safari last July, and one of the places we visited was Pilanesberg National Park, which is South Africa's 4th largest park and 550 square kilometers in size (or about 200 square miles) This park hosts all of the Big 5 African species - Leopard, Lion, Cape Buffalo, Rhino, and Elephant. We saw all of these except the leopard, and many other animals as well. We even saw a pack of African wild dogs chase down and kill an impala - the circle of life right there in front of us. Very rare thing to see. This park can be visited in a day from points near Johannesburg. We took tons of pictures and here are just a few.

You can learn more about the park here:

Here are a few pics from the trip...

Burchell's zebra - common in South Africa. They have grey stripes between the black and white stripes.

White Rhino. Our guide was getting a little nervous with this big boy only 20 feet from the vehicle

We drove to the top of a hill where we could see in all directions (safe from immediate predator attack) and got out of the vehicle for a minute to stretch our legs. Found some elephant "sign." Lolz.

Yesterday at 04:33 PM Pureocean Restaurant at DIVI [by Tom]
What happens when you create an interesting menu but you don't discuss it with the chef and waitstaff? You get a Burrata salad made with Mozzarella, Bruschetta that is a toasted French bread slice topped with just grilled onion and,though it was a featured desert item and after waiting 28 minutes, the Affogato was a mere bowl of ice cream. What a huge disappointment at the DIVI restaurant.

Yesterday at 04:02 PM Rialto Pizza & Pasta in Maho [by SammyM]
Just curious if anyone has ever dined here. Reviews online were favorable. Never heard of it from our past trips, so thinking of giving it a try with our next visit in March. Any insights pro or con?

01/21/2019 11:12 PM Super Bowl [by scheppster]
Hi All,

We will be staying in Cane Garden Bay (Rhymer's) The first week of February and was wondering if anyone there will be showing the Super Bowl. Last time we were there for Super Bowl, we watched it at Myett's but now that Pussers runs their restaurant, I wasn't sure it they would be doing it. Thanks in advance! We can't wait to get back to our favorite vacation destination!

Thank You,

Hi - We are going to bareboat early Feb and spend 1-2 days in North Sound. I am interested in anchoring at Drake's anchorage or West side of Prickly Pear. Any suggested landmarks or comments? (yes, I know Leverick is near by)

01/21/2019 10:47 PM Island phone question [by sxmsandbum]
I have a phone that I got a sim card from Sharon, Queen of St Maarten phone service. I haven't used it since before Irma. I still have a bunch of time on it. Is there anywhere on island that I can take it to find out if that number is still good and get it reactivated? Thanks in advance!
