All this on my door step

Well a 2 hour drive west from Centurion to Pilanesburg Game Reserve.

I dressed for the part...

...camoflagued to blend in with the zebras (we saw only 1)

We were at altitude, the temperature averaged 35c during the day.

We saw so many animals it was unbelievable and so close to where we were.

There was only 1 rhino on this trip.

A variety of antelope (gets boring, Yawns) I promise I'm going to learn to identify them.

There were plenty of giraffes.

This Ostrich was seriously close.

Then there was the elephants...they are just so big, fast and not very friendly if you get in their way.

We heard a nosie beneath us and looked down.

Give us a lift mate.

Can't I'm tired.

I had to get out the car to read this sign...sort of defeats the object really.

A stop for lunch at one of many picnic spots and photo opportunities for the kids also.

Wrong side of the fence, son.

And finally about a mile from the gate...Lions
