Here are some photos from our last days in South Africa. After baseball in Durban and and saying goodbye to Thanda, we rented a car and drove north to Hluhluwe National Park, a game reserve several hours north of Durban. We spent a day there, two nights, and then headed back to Durban to catch our flight back to Europe. ***Don't forget to check page 2 of this blog for the crocodile pictures!!!!... Read Full Entry

A short visit with crocodiles on our way back to Durban.

this place is sort of a small croc zoo, there to raise awareness and understanding of crocodiles. It is also a 'farm,' in that it sells croc skins and meat to make money.

This tour guide/croc expert was incredible. He would get so close to the crocs you would not believe--and he had this thick South African accent, he really was a real live 'Crocodile Hunter'. He told us stories of his adventures.

at the croc center, you cannot put more than one male in a single pen because they are extremely aggressive and territorial. This guy, the biggest one, lived in one pen with seven 'wives.'

Can you believe this place? Looks like a huge temple, or Mosque or something. I thought it was a palace until I passed the entrance and saw signs for a casino.
