The Real Deal
The pictures in the last post were just some images I found on the net, these a true blue authentic photos coming from M & D.
Yesterday, it being another holiday (Workers Day), we took a trip to Pilanesberg game reserve with two other couples. It took two hours to get there and then we spent 6 1/2 hours watching animals. We saw giraffes, white rhinos, hippos, gazelles, wildebeests, warthogs, zebras, 1 crocodile, and about 40 elephants up close, playing in the lake with their young ones. Some elephants reminded us of our kids and grandkids because they would submerge themselves in the water, then jump up out of the water and then sink back down under it again. Some were using their trunks as a snorkle, you know, 'up periscope' style. It was so great seeing them in their element and believe me, we stayed in "our" element, the van.
