The purple Jacaranda. The people of Pretoria have to fence themselves in because off high criminality.
All tiredness from a long flight suddenly disappear when we draw into the Entabeni range area. Alongside there was a Giraffe family. We draw around to get closer until we were few meters from the big animals.

The trip started when we went straight form Johannesburg Airport to Pretoria to se one of the capitals of South Africa. Along the streets in Pretoria the Jacaranda trees were blossoming with the most beautiful purple flowers giving the town a special look.

We couldn't get out of the bus because of danger of being robbed. After having the lunch at a pancake house we drove to our destination – Entabeni Game Reserve.

As we drove into the park the fun began there was Impalas along the road and suddenly we saw a Giraffe standing close to the road.

After this fantastic start of the trip, we got to our camp area and unpacked in our tent. In and around the dinning area there are an wild activity of Yellow Weaver Birds.

The first Game Drive started early next morning at 6. The sun was coming up over the horizon and it was bitterly cold. We were driving around
