Afrika day 3 to 5-01
Two Cheetahs looking for food on the other side of the fence
The morning game drive starts early at 6 o'clock just after sunrise. It's bitterly cold but it is the time where it is possible to find the animals. You have to take warm and wind braking clothes on.
This morning we found the cheetahs walking on the road close to the fence of the Reserve. The cheetahs were interested in some Impalas on the other side of the fence.
Later in the day the heat was catching up and it became really hot. Animals try to stay in the shade of the trees. A giraffe had kneeled down under a tree to get some shade
The aim of the afternoon trip was to visit a breeding centre for the white lion and to visit a Pedi village. The village is a museum because it is impossible to get into at real village without offending the tradition of the Pedi people. The ranger told the story about the Pedi people and we tasted some of their food. The visit ended with some young adults showing a couple of dances.
On the way back we went through the water buffalo area to have a look at the big animals.
Afrika day 3 to 5-02
Giraffe kneeled down in the shadow of a tree
Next morning we had a new look at the elephants, wildebeests and zebras. The lion male was a little sad because the rangers had removed his sister because he tried to mate her. That would not be good for the gene pool.
Back in the camp we found our local warthogs (Pumba).
In the evening we vent on another game ride with a before dinner drink and ended up at a ready dinner table in the middle of the bush.
