Always it seems to be the same view

butts
Hahahaha, we went to South Africa just this january and some 10 years ago we toured Southern Africa - and yes, we do have a full collection of butts. The Big Five from their best side as well as many other animals from the bush.

Just beautiful
He is just so beautiful! And I am using Marla oil on my face these days, so now I will think of this majestic animal every time I reach for the little bottle

No lions today and just the outline of one yesterday but the leopards at Kruger very much made up for it

Feels like I am there too!
Really, really well written Dad, feels like I am there too! So pleased that you guys are seeing so many of these animals and realising your dream....now bring on those elusive lions?!?!

Spelling error
Your label of the white hippos should read white rhinos. Hope this is helpful. My previous cryptic message wasn't picked up.

Wonderful animal pics
You've got some wonderful pictures of the animals you have seen. Move over David bring on Gretchen. Just wondering about your focus of the white rhinos or white hippos? With their horn reduced in size they could easily be mistaken for hippos. In the excitement mistakes happen. Just don't mistake a lion for an Eddie.

Pictures on the blog are stills taken from video and trying to focus up the ones chosen to make them sharper.Might take more practice.

Face plant in Chagny
I remember the incident well. This time was it the face or the nether region that suffered in the fall? Is a rubber ring on order? We remember Chagny well. Went to the Saturday market and bought wonderful umbrellas. We still have them. Hope the patient is well.

You two keep safe! Definite no to picking up hitchhikes, hold each others hands on uneven terrain and keep out of "townships" (especially after dark!!!!)

Rules are rules!

The lady at check in at B&B absolutely assured us Mossel Bay was safe to walk at night.The only night escapades since have been in the safari game drives each night in a land rover with a burly South African driving.

Highs and Lows of travel.
That was disappointing for you not being able to get to the top of Table Mountain but sounds like you covered a fair area with your bus trip and like you I've always been horrified about the living conditions of the poor and opulence of the rich lifestyles.

Pleased you arrived safely
We followed your flights on Flightradar24. All looked good until you disappeared off radar soon after entering the Indian Ocean. No matter what we did we couldn't find you. MH370 came to mind. After several hours what a relief to see you reemerge from the mysteries of airspace over the Indian Ocean over the coast of Madagascar. Sounds like all is going according to plan. Look forward to reading the rest of the adventure. C & M .

The Indian Ocean equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle
Yes,we had that strange feeling that we were out there in the absolute middle of nowhere and it took an age to get from land to land for those of the BBA V4 that were awake for practically the whole 9 hours over the ocean,Gretchen was asleep for a good part after taking a sleeping pill.I kept the aircraft flight path on in front of me peeking at it every so often as I tried to close my eyes to sleep.There was one heavy bit of turbulence that sent the aircraft up 500 metres and a wicked kink in the path we took to avoid any more of it on the TV monitor.Was very pledased to see Madagascar below and even though there was more ocean after that at least the coast of Africa was always on the screen.

Yay for arriving safely and having a good first day. But no more mentions of taking wrong turns to get home please! Always ALWAYS know where you are going and how to get there (grrrrr).
25th May 2019

Would have got home OK the way we were going but just a little further distance than turning around and going back.All good today though as we are getting used to the lay of the land.Being very careful as instructed

Waiting for the next instalment
Now I can start to picture where you are going. I am certain between your blog and photos that we will feel like we are on safari from our rocking chairs at home. Can’t wait for the adventure to begin!
