The uncertain elephants I mentioned in part 1. (Also, for those of you not from the south Mrs. Winners is a fast food restaurant.)
If you put your curser on the pictures and click, they will get larger.
We learned quickly to go wherever there were cars stopped. It took awhile to see the animals they had spotted. Can you see them?
There are actually lions sound asleep in the grass! After thoroughly exhausting our eyes trying to see the lions, it was time to head back to camp and start the fire for dinner! Dauw fixed us some lamb chops, baked potatoes, roasted carrots, and sandwiches grilled with cheese, onion and tomatoes! Very tasty. We of course saved room for roasted coconut marshmallows on digestive biscuits! Ok – if you haven’t had them, wow – you should . . . Just ask Annie! She had had them in India . . . buttery cookies made with whole wheat flour (hence good for the “system”) with a nice coating of chocolate on one side! As dinner was cooking, there were spotted hyenas watching (there was a fence between us).
Again still on the Musgrave Family Vaca, so we headed out the next morning at 6:00 (not sure why we slept in – maybe because the gate didn’t open until then??)
How could I have forgotten – the rhino Doug spotted while driving (on Day 1)! It looks close to the road, but wasn’t! The man can multi-task!!
We had a South African treat – instant coffee – in the car that morning with our cereal and Ouma Rusks (google them). While eating breakfast in the car, we spotted our first of many buffalos. We had to eat with the windows up part of the time since monkeys were wanting to join us!
My most exciting moment was spotting a leopard! We could have so easily missed him. I was so speechless, all I could do was point and say, “there.”
God truly blessed us! We saw the “Big Five” – something that is not common! And we did it within the first 24 hours we were in the park!
Here are some other animals we saw:
And though small, I’d go back just to see the birds!
See what you’re missing! Don’t you want to come to South Africa!!!!
